    Out of balance Hunt carbon wheels?

    Ive just taken delivery of a pair of Hunt 36 UD carbon wheels and very nice they are to. Super light at just 1290 grammes, which means that they hook up incredibly quickly and ascending with them is just fantastic. The bearings are so silky smooth to, these are not the ceramic bearing version...

    Triban rc520 wheels upgrade.

    Hello. I intend to do a wheels upgrade into gravel direction to my Triban rc520 and I wonder if this wheelset from Mavic it worth ? The wheels have 23 mm internal rim width (instead 17mm of original) , think more better suited for 35 mm tires I intended to use. Do You see any incompatibility? If...

    Summer Wheels !

    Well it's not summer yet but I figured I'd pull out the summer wheels early. I've ridden tri-spokes and deep rims forever it seems. But over the last two years I've stayed off my Reynolds 81's because I've been over there weight limit. I was over the weight limit for some time but three years...

    Tyres for 26 inch vintage road wheels

    My son has picked up a scruffy Raleigh Olympus for an inexpensive (hopefully) resto project. It is generally good, but without tyres fitted and he is struggling to size them. We are getting roundly confused with ISO diameters and by visual comparison concluded that 650B road tyres (584mm ISO)...

    Interesting video on carbon clincher wheels.

    Might be best to avoid watching if you use rim braked carbon clinchers? View: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7O95Cd-aogk

    Carbon disc wheels - £1K budget - recommendations welcome...

    Hi, I've just bought a discounted 2020 Cervelo S5 and I'm due to collect in a week or so from my local bike shop. The wheels are pretty mediocre and let the whole package down a little. The shop recommend Hunt Aero 50s at £800 a set. I've read that although they're not bad, they're nothing...

    lightweight wheels vs bladed spokes

    would i even notice the difference? i have some superstar wheels circa under 1500g but narrow rims so the tyres bulge over the rim versus some rs11s, 400 g heavier but a wider rim and bladed spokes

    New wheels, again!

    My Ti bike has 50mm deep section wheels which makes gusty winds entertaining. Until this morning I had a set of Mavic Aksium Disc's to use in these conditions - I sold them because they weren't anywhere near as nice as the summer wheels, weren't tubeless ready and I never used them :shy: Instead...

    I love my Cole Wheels

    I have over 60,000 miles on this set of Cole wheel, and the roads have beat them pretty hard. For a Clydesdale (225 lbs) guy who doesn't baby his wheels and puts a ton of torque on the rear wheel doing all my thigh burner climbs (15-28% grade). I just can't complain that I have just now in the...

    Jockey wheels; Bearing or not?

    Took the jockey wheels off/out, gave them a really serious clean, probably way over due although they get the brush & degreaser on a regular basis. Anyway, my question is, do jockey wheels have bearing in them or just run on the spindle in the centre? Short of pulling one of them to pieces...

    Thinking about new wheels

    Probably a stupid question....but anyway. Had my Cube Attain for six months. Worn out rear wheel bearings after 750 miles and front ones noisy too now. AlexRims are the wheel set Cube supply but model not indicated. LBS think that my problem is a predilection for cycling on broken back lanes/mud...

    Switching disc wheels - is it simple?

    Just for the sake of clarity this is a question about wheels with disc brakes not the sort of wheels testers use on the rear. For winter entertainment I'm building a disc braked new bike and I'd like it to have two sets of wheels; a very light set for hill-climbs and a deep rim set for...

    Has anyone here toured using low spoke count wheels?

    When planning a tour I usually eye up the road bike but always end up taking the touring bike, with it's heavy duty wheelset instead. Has anyone taken the plunge and toured with modern, low spoke count wheels? How did it work out for you?
