Not hand built but very sound; great for day to day use. Seems extremely durable, only lacks a rim wear band. OUTSTANDING service from Sheffield branch

Ok, No rim tape, no easy rim wear indicator

Posted22 July 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable
I got this wheel to replace the Shimano R500 wheel I had. Unlike the Shimano there is no easy to read rim wear indicator with these wheels.
Also, after having two punctures fairly quickly (and after consulting a bike mechanic). I was told there should be rim tape on this wheel and not using rim tape is a bit like having shoes without laces.

Excellent product

Posted17 July 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
Delighted with this product. Kept getting punctures from the spokes of my old, inferior wheel. Problem now solved. This wheel is reasonably light and runs as true as you could wish for. QR skewer was also included. Fits Schraeder valve.

Best wheel, bang for buck ?

Posted29 April 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
Purchased for my trusty reynolds tubed everyday workhorse (pub/shopping/commuting/touring bike). Replaced the 17 year old Mavic T261 whose rim weld split open when I put the tyre lever in the wrong place fitting the 'swine to get on' (but puncture resistant)Continental Touring Plus. I hope I've learnt that lesson to get the wire beads deep down into the rim well & work it round with patience. Deore hub is not as 'good looking' as the RX100 it replaced & the rim weld alignment wasn't absolutely perfect if I'm being really, really picky; but it was machined & built well enough & spins true. I didn't find a lot of other options for a 36 spoke robust wheel in this price bracket, but I'm reasonably confident it'll do the job having fitted and ridden it over a couple of weeks.

Great value for money

Posted02 April 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value
I wore out the Alex Rims wheel which came with my hybrid and there are not many choices for a 25mm rim. I already replaced the rear wheel with the M:Wheel Deore hubbed Mavic A319 rim and they are strong and smooth running.
Rebuilding a rim was going to cost almost the same so this was an easy option.

Great Wheel for a Tourer

Posted26 November 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality
This wheel is a perfect replacement for a Dawes galaxy or similar touring bike.
Sturdily made and good quality.
Wiggo would not win any stages with it but then again Wiggo ain't carrying 40kg of luggage.

Very good wheel

Posted18 August 2010
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable
Cons: Heavy
My first thought on these wheels were, am i paying over the top for a wheel that i can most probably get elsewhere for half the price - The really truth is you pay for what you get.
These wheels are by far best that i have purchased for my Hybrid Globe bike.
The Pro's - Run Smooth, Deal well with the pot holes of the city roads, Evans Price match saved me £30 off these wheels and i can see these lasting me a long time.
The Con's - Slightly heavier than my original Specialized wheels i got with the bike but these do run alot smoother.
Overall i would say these are well worth the money and would recommend these for commuting and leisure.
