title says it all really, are there any members who have experience of this?
well i took the plunge and bought some mtb wheels, inc tyres, cassette and discs.
good for you, I've never bought anything directly from BC as they only ever have track Bikes. But the classified section has some good bargains
walker, that's not true they currently have team trek road and have just sold the last of their team MTB for sale.
You'll get a hard ridden but looked after bike though ! Better than an unknown something on ebay......
Doesn't matter what the idiot spent on a bike new, unless they look after it...
Had the misfortune to spend a few weeks with a guy (50 odd year old - didn't like me a youngster of 38 having spent the last 22 years welded to a bike) He was a recent convert to bikes who thought he knew it all - had a Scott MTB - XTR Carbon thingy - very nice top of the range.. and wore Scott kit all the time - you see a trend here folks....... asked me what chain lube I use......
Finish line Professional Dry Lube I say..... he says "sounds expensive".. "erm you have a top of the bolloxx Scott".......".....I use GT85"
That explains why his chainset/chain and cassette wore out. ...talking some pounds here folks.......XTR shoot, wore out on a new bike cos the idiot won't use proper lube.... or look after the thing.... "I take it to the bike shop for a service"....what...it still needs a clean and drive chain system clean.....
The cheeky bugger took the piss for me wearing a helmet....I was too polite to tell him to do one....
having been told 10 days the wheels arrived today!! and i'm thoroughly pleased with them!!
Hoorah for BCF
Off topic, but you're not related to this guy are you, Mr Magoo ?

All the BCF ones always seem built for giants.
That is one hell of a literate dog !! not an inky paw print in sight either !
