100mm 120mm wheelset
I have just purchased a trek 2nd districk frame that has 100mm front wheel spacing and 120mm rear
I am looking for a wheelset for general use but all seen to be for track bikes
Any suggestions of a wheelset?
I have looked at these but they seem really heavy but atleat there cheapPosted 3 months agoqwertyMember
Thats some serious heft @ nearly 2.4kg for that wheelset – but they are cheap!
Look for some track hubs ( 💡 GoldTec) & build with Mavic Open Pro rims?
SJS can do you a wheelset build.Posted 3 months ago
Halo Aerotrack and Aerorage are pretty good for the money (£150) and weigh around 1900 grams.
With a 120mm rear hub you will be looking at wheels labelled as track but they are fine for general purpose use (as long as they have a machined brake surface which most do)Posted 3 months ago
and Dolan Bikes
both have excellent ranges, from the very reasonably priced up to ‘you can get a car for that’ crazinessPosted 3 months ago
Velodrome shop helpfully make sure they state in the product description whether or not there is a braking surface
They don’t however point out that you are unlikely to receive what you have ordered/paid for.
Only worth using if you are in no rush at all for what you have ordered as you may never get it.Posted 3 months agocookeaaSubscriber
I used a standard QR Road wheel on the front of my fixie till I changed to a disc fork (and now use a pretty standard QR 29er MTB wheel)… So you can use almost any 622 rimed wheel on the front
Having the front QR potentially saves some faff if I were to get a front wheel puncture…
120mm is also a pretty common standard for track/SS/Fixed bikes, I’ve got a Rigida Rim built on a Cheap hub I bought from Planet X, I keep a 15mm spanner fixed to the frame in case I need to remove the rear wheel for a flat… You can get 120mm QR hubs but they’re rarer and in theory more likely to slip under load, handy for punctures though…
I’d look for ‘Truebuild’ wheels/wheelsets online maybe, they tend to be cheap…Posted 3 months ago
Oh dear are they a bit crap? I didn’t realise!!
They haven’t got the best reputation. I always suspect a shop that has such a large list of obscure stuff for sale. Guessing their model is to order from their supplier when they get an order which can go wrong quite often (see Tredz!)Posted 3 months ago
There’s a fair few disgruntled customers amongst the happy ones on TrustPilotPosted 3 months ago
