- Road Wheelset £150 ish… Planet X or Shimano RS61 or ?!?!
I bought, from Rose bikes on behalf of a friend, some wheels based on Shimano 105 hubs, SS DB spokes and Mavic Open pro rims. Very nicely made, legendary Shimano bearings and the ultra tough but light Open Pros are a great match. Hubs might be a few more grams making the wheels a bit heavier but the rims are light and tough. They were around £150-160 ish IIRC.Posted 6 years ago
I’d rather buy some more like that than these all in one offerings from Shimano/PX. Not trendy to do wheels the old fashioned way but stronger and longer lasting every time.thisisnotaspoonSubscriber
The PX hubs are nice enough, why not get them built on some better (stiffer) rims? Including spokes/building at an LBS you’d be looking at ~£60 leaving ~£40/rim, which mean’s pretty much anything with the right number of holes is an option.
Or just get open pros on whatever shimano hubs keep it within budget.Posted 6 years agoOCBMember
Tiagra/Open Sport £140 pair via madison dealer
I bought a set of these a month or so back … and I’m very impressed.Posted 6 years ago
I’d always been a bit sniffy about Tiagra, but I can definitely see another set of these in my (near) future, especially given their (apparent) toughness / weight / straight-forward rebuilds.
