I just can't understand how someone would want to steal the wheels off a Triban 500. I love my '14 Triban 500 but the wheels don't look anything special!
the front had marathon 2 tyre and the rear a mitchelin reinforced slick so they probably looked nicer then normal. loved that tyre setup...

Can anyone recommend an ok rear gear cog that would basically replace the one i had on my triban 500se? i also need a spacer to go with the back gear cogs.
thanks for the heat, this is my first deal over 200 (over 0 i think).

decent wheels, I have been through four sets of them. they last about 3000 miles with heavy use.
That's hard to believe - I've had second-hand wheels (i.e. already part-used) last twice as long as that. What are you doing to them?!
I commute every day to work in all weathers, 10 miles each way. flat out. I also live in Bath and North East Somerset and its hilly as hell, so the brakes get used a fair bit on steep descents. Believe me, its true!I have never had any set of wheels last 3000 miles. Either the rims go completely concave, or the hub gets destroyed. In which case, its not worth repairing, as they are cheap wheels anyway.

I'm going to go out on one here and say that you could significantly improve your braking if you use some top rubber like the Swissstop Pro green jobbas. They will cost you less and you will notice a HUGE difference!
Must be some placebo going on as I switched to some expensive pads and didn't notice much difference at all. A bike service does make a huge difference though if you get them to adjust the brakes.

adjusting the brakes is a very simple thing to do (probably the easiest bit of bike maintenance you can do) no need to get the bike serviced for that.

When buying brakes such as this I assume they do not come with cables? thanks

If you want to improve stopping in all weathers buy Swissstop pads. They also increase life of your wheels.

Great tyres and this is a good price for them. Been riding on them for a good while. They're tough and at the 700x25 roll reasonably fast. Unfortunately only a couple of sizes are available at this price, the other size is more expensive and the sizes I'd need are out of stock. Good for those who need the available sizes.
If I'm 700cx28 which one do I need to get? it's not labelled correctly or states this like the others

It looks like you won't be able to get 700x28 - as the other sizes are smaller or much bigger. Depending on the type of bike you'd be able to ride the 700x25. It's narrower, so it would fit whatever space is currently using 700x28. It's whether you like or feel comfortable with a narrower tyre. I use the 25 on my road bike and I like that it strikes a balance of not being too skinny, like a 23, but not so wide that it's slow. Really good for pothole and glass strewn city streets.

As mentioned by the OP, these aren't great in the wet.

If you're after something with a bit more grip, I'd go for these personally:

How much do they actually weigh? Fulcrum always seem to exaggerate on their weight claims...

I think mine were a few grams over the claimed weight but still lighter than the shallower Mavic Aksiums they replaced, so far they've stayed truer too. These have had about 5,000 km the mavics lasted 10/15,000 before the spokes pulled through the rim.

Yes red ones so you look more bling and go faster. Also they are quite useful for tensioning the spokes.

They would be about 7% better, but exactly 23% more difficult to fit
Rather than trying (and failing) to be funny, why not try and be helpful?!

bombdisposal
would these be better than the standard fit btwin triban 3 wheels ? also would they be difficult to fit & any tools required to fit the rear chain set. i guess front is just a straight swap
would appreciate any advice ta.
It depends on the type of riding you do. Flat day-to-day riding or the odd commute, I doubt you'll notice much difference. If you do a lot of hillier route, or a lot of climbing, then I would expect these to make life slightly easier (even if it's a placebo effect. New wheels = try harder ;) )

With regards to changing them, you'll need a chain whip and cassette removal tool so that you can take the rear cassette off, and put it on your new wheels. These wheels are 8, 9, 10 & 11 speed, so they should work with the 2300 groupset that I believe comes with the Triban 3, but you will need to use a spacer (which should come with the wheels).

If you're happy to purchase the tools, and are keen to give it a go, then there are plenty of guides online that tell you how. I'd start with looking at the GCN channel on YouTube. Otherwise, check with a couple of LBS (local bike shops) to see what they'll charge to change and fit the wheels for you.

I have Mavic CXP22's on my specialised allez at the moment. Would these be a significant upgrade?
I have cxp22 too and am wondering the exact same thing. However, I'm not sure it will be anything huge as the mavics cost nearly the same
Sorry... Ignore what I just said. Just seen the rrp. Not sure
Yeh the rrp is quite different, but is it just inflated? Hopefully someone with a bit more knowledge will enlighten us.
Many years ago 24 spoke was for time trialing and 28 to 32 was road racing and 36 was for training,presume its the rim and spoke strengths and more knowledge has seen the use of low spoke count.

The RRP of £225 is a bit misleading. They can be had widely for between £95 (Evans & others) - £120 (almost everywhere) in wider colour range.
£115-£120 seems the going rate elsewhere. Evans' £95 is only for rear.

Yes, you're right about Evans - missed that.

The other shop is doing carbon frame with a comparable SRAM Apex groupset for £799 or shimano 105 for £899.

Also SRAM Force 22 for £999 that seems a steal!!!

Cant argue the price for this though - have some heat.

My only comment is if you can try and ride them, you will end up preferring one - people get so hung up on the spec but how it feels to you when you ride it / the fit is the most important thing and we are all different - another thing would be you can always go second hand but if you do factor in the cost of a service .....

Can you use these with a 10 Speed Groupset?
you can but you might be better off with the r501 wheels, they are pretty much the same and 10 speed. Unless of course you are going to upgrade to 11 speed in the near future
Nothing like the r501 even if they are the 501 replacement. These are more like the rs11 with asymmetric rims and 24mm depth.
Bloody good deal though.
really? they have a much higher spoke count though.
they don't have straight pull spokes and different hubs too don't they?

I stand corrected. The rims are very much RS11, and seems the hubs are very much R501.

No pedals either - Just as well because I use shimano SPD-SL and most folk I know use Look Keo, so it would be fitted with the wrong ones for many.
If I were spending a grand on a bike I'd expect it to work straight out of the box rather than have to spend another couple of hundred quid replacing various parts of it!
You don't have to...
He is just saying that the wheels are not great. Most cyclists will have another set of race wheels etc
Surely the point is for a grand they ought to be amazing wheels, not even just OK
Nearly all road bikes come with "training" wheels. Its a part commonly changed very quickly by many cyclists. Selling a carbon bike with a £600 Groupset is great value for money. But something has to give to meet the price point.
You propbally could use the wheels and be satisfied, but i personally have my good set for club rides, sportives and chain gangs. Again i use the cheap ones in winter as i dont want to wear out or damage my good ones.
BTW an amazing set of wheels cost a Grand on their own.

Same experience with Ribble here, Gran fondo went back 3 times, I had to force the issue and customer service was iffy at best. Lovely bike to ride though when it wasn't back for (structural frame defect) repairs. Eventually got fed up of waiting for it to be replaced and bought a Roubaix.

Good bike spec so heat added for that.
However I have had endless problems with a bike I have had from ribble and their attitude towards it is awfull. Their customer service has gone down alot in my opinion
what problems did you have?
My bike has been back to them 7 times.
I have had 3 new frames due to faults.
Faults that they have caused not setting bike up properly.
I even took my bike to a place called Quinns Cycles who listed the issues for me to send to them to fix properly.
Now when the bike goes back they always request I go to collect, they don't even offer any compensation for u having to drive 1.3 hrs to collect the bike back. This was after owning the bike for 5 mths.
All the email to date I have not had one apology for the issues I have had.
I just would never use them again.


Fair enough, that is pretty bad, its a bit of a problem with ordering bikes online generally, its fine until you need to send them back for any reason.

I've never bought a complete bike from them but have bought a frame, groupset, wheels and various other bits and pieces with no issues.
