A range of budget wheels for Mountain bikes.

Amazingly cheap price for alloy wheels. I'm not pretending they are great they should be as good as anything from a £300 bike.

If yours are buckled / worn out or rusty you won't find any cheaper than these.

These wheels are fine. Not bomb proof, nor are the £1k wheels that 'claim' to be really! Practically disposable at this price! :thumbsup:

Heat ;-)

Might get the rest of the bike in the sales

excellent value replacement for a mtb thats not taken near any mountains

Make sure you get the right pair. I'm guessing most people will want the "cassette" pair. I think all 8/9/10 speed bikes are cassettes. 7 speed can be cassette or screw on.

Chain Reaction also have some good deals on FSA chainsets.

You're right.
Not sure anyone with a 10 speed cassette on their MTB is going to want a £10 wheel though!

Great price! Hot.

Anyone know where I can get 16" rims (36 spoke) or wheels (steel or alloy)? Rebuilding an old Moulton and can't find them anywhere.

Seems like a very good price considering delivery is included too!

Give Alistair Gow a call, he runs Wheelcraft 01360 312 709

He'll know, or try Ben Cooper at Kinetics: kinetics.org.uk/

Anyone know any cheap rears that will take a pro-max disc brake?

My eldest came off a jump rather badly a few weeks ago - we've replaced just about everything and then realised that he's actually buckled the wheel hub itself! It's only a cheap wheel so we might as well replace the lot.

That would cover about 99.9% of the market then.

True, since it's an utterly pointless candy 'upgrade' anyone with a 10 speed cassette on an MTB probably has more money than sense :-D

Thanks and rep.

Just spent £15 getting a spoke replaced on my Bontrager wheel and it is worse than ever....the bike shop have done something to the hub as it's making the same crunching noise as when the bearings are worn out. Also still buckled.

Might just get a set of these.

Bike shops, in general are useless.

Yup, you got thst right. Better off investing in a couple of decent maintainance books, and buying/fitting/tweaking the parts youself. Chances are, even your own half arsed job will be better than a spotty trainee 17 year old's, concentrating more an his iPod playlist than fixing your bike!

Best thing to do is start of fixing an old crappy bike. That way you'll be half decent with a spoke key before you start to mess with your mavics.

True...I always try and do repairs myself (the emphasis on TRY) lol

I have a few bikes...Kona, Trek 6500 etc etc and have replaced most parts myself but I had real problems getting the spoke off an old wheel and trying to fit it to the Bontranger.... before realising it was maybe a fraction of a millimeter too long..... so took it to the bike shop.

The thing about doing it yourself though is that you end up spending a fortune on the tools and devices..... I have prob spent over £100 on tools...ie: cassette tools, bottom bracket tools, spoke keys..... spanner sets

For everything else there is Youtube!

buy the wrong wheels and when you go over a little bump this happens : youtube.com/wat…cAU
