- 700c Alfine disc rear wheel , Shimano WH-S501
Shimano WH-S501 rear wheel
Alfine 8, centre lock disc hub polished silver, 24 straight pull spokes in black
Polished silver rim 622x19c
18t rear cog 12 months old
1 month old Shimano Nexus 8spd twist shifter
135mm bolt up axle & horizontal dropout washers.
Wheel is 2 years old, only used for commuting average about 8 miles per day working week. Came new on my Cotic Roadrat. Degreased and had regular oil bath using Dexron2 gearbox oil, makes it a lot smoother and reduces drag. Works fine, set up a little fiddley as it works best lined up just off the yellow dots, presumably due to wear.
Spokes are prefect, nice and tight but rim a has slight buckle from curbing, I’d straighten it but my spoke key doesn’t fit. Some minor marking to rim edge from kerbs, rim has machined sidewalls so I assume you could use rimbrakes.
All that is required for fitting is outer cable.
Postage won’t be cheap so £100 collected or sensible offers? I live in Stafford near Cannock Chase.
