Death of the Aluminium Wheel????????


Senior Member
Evening all,

I cannot for the life of me find any 40mm 700c aluminium wheels/rims, every variation of a google search goes straight to carbon!:banghead: is this death of the deep rim ally wheel? :sad:

I have a small budget of £200 Max.

Can anyone help?



Why is 40 so important to you?

Best I can do without bothering to Google is campagnolo scirocco 35 which come in under 200 And are apparently ok. Or shimano rs31 are 30 mm rims.

Superstar Components. Good wheels at great prices.

I think with evolution of disc brakes, more and more carbon options will be hitting the lbs shelves in the very near future

So the OP could well be right

I bet they said the same about frames too....
Frame are a little different to wheels, lots of people wont use carbon wheels due to heat and stopping issues,with disc brakes those issues are no longer a problem, so it opens up a whole new market
