- Shimano r501 road wheels
I had R-550’s for years, they’re pretty reliable. Eventualy snapped a spoke and CBA fixing it as the nipples are in the hub on the 550’s and I CBA getting yet another spoke key to do it. R-500 avoids that problem by using normal hubs and rims so they’d be even better.Posted 4 years agostanfreeMember
After a cheap set of wheels and had originally looked at Fulcrum 5 or Aksiums but was put off by the bladed spokes. Im fairly fit and have done 2500 miles in 9 months on the stock Giant Defy 2 wheels which aren’t light.
Just found merlin doing a stupid cheap price on Shimano r501’s for £77 , Anyone got them ? I know they are cheap but are they that much different to a dearer set of shimano’s.
