Spare wheel for the turbo...

by davecochrane   December 28, 2011  

Hi folks - I've just set up my indoor torture facility in the garage, and after the first ride I've already noticed a change in my rear tire. I know that wear is accelerated on a trainer, and plan to get a trainer tire this week. However - I need a spare wheel to put it on. It clearly doesn't need to be an amazing one, and I'd like to keep the cost of it down as much as possible. It'll need an Ultegra standard 10 speed cassette on it.

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance! Big Grin

For my turbo I picked up a Shimano r501 rear wheel and a 10 speed tiagra cassette from chain reaction cycles, cost about £85 and is perfectly adequate for turbo trainer use.
