Do you want to know more about bike wheels?

Bike wheels are made of a metal ring on top of which the tyres, a central hub and a set of spokes which connect the rim to the hub are mounted. The tyres are normally made of rubber with an inner air chamber.

Depending on the number of spokes the wheel has, it will be lighter or heavier. The lighter the wheel, the faster they will spin and the greater the acceleration. Road bikes generally seek greater speed and so they use lighter and slimmer wheels with a thinner tyre than normal bikes, whereas mountain bikes have to withstand heavy impact on uneven ground and so their wheels are thicker, heavier and have fatter tyres.

There is a wide variety of bike wheels, which depending on the sport they are used for and the how often, a specific type will be recommended for you. There are economical rims for cyclists who do not cycle very often and other more expensive wheels for people who use their bikes on a daily basis.

Fulcrum Front Wheel Adapter Kit
Adapts the hub as expected
Fit is a bit tight but that is how it has to be. Don't be alarmed when fitting them. Use a clamping tool.

DT Swiss X 1900 Spline 29" Rear Wheel (12/148 mm Boost Thru Axle)
DT Swiss quality
Very good packaging. Goes with TL rim tape installed and with CL adapter. Shimano standard drive fits perfect with my NX pg1130 ,11-42 speed. I had doubt if it was compatible and it is. Clean the area nicely before installing. Cool sound of the 3pawl system.

Front wheel Mavic Crossride FTS-X 26 &quot Intl black
Good wheels at sensible prices.
Good deals to be had with this website as long as you’re willing to wait . Make sure its in stock when ordering as I bought two wheels , front and back, and after placing the order I noticed on my progress chart that it wasn’t moving after a week. They had given me an estimated date of around two weeks , from Madrid. However they did deliver on time although longer than I expected. Tracking of the order from GLS seemed poor but the Parcelforce tracking and delivery UK side was good. So all in all was happy I made a good saving but the wait was long.
