    My wheels are getting dangerous, spokes missing, and I’m wobbling around, the tires are also cracked, So I emailed my local bike shop asking him to price up some cheap wheels and tires, this is his response, what do you think, good deal?

    "Hi, i have priced you them up for you. For 2 Wilkinson wheels with Rigida rims £64.00 and for 2 Schwalbe Blizzard Kevlar folding tyres £40.00 i will do it all for £100 including fitting."

    He's not knocking off a huge discount for buying together, but it seems to be a reasonable deal, especially as you get tyres and presumably inner tubes aswell. Will he change over your sprockets and get your brakes setup too?

    Do you know what hubs those wheels come with?

    Chears, I think so, i did say to set it up as well, so I guilt him into doing it for free if not. Chears for opinion
