So, I figured that no bicycle forum would be complete without pictures of bikes! Post your photos here, no bike will be refused: Road TT Triathlon Cyclocross MTB BMX Shixie Fixie And anything else! Lovely bikes lovely, but everyday bikes interesting too. I won't post first, but I'm taking pictures right now. I wanna see what bikes you're all riding!
There often seems very little real world reviews of components so here is an honest review of my latest wheelset. 1st post so I will give you some background of the type of riding I do and experience. I have cycled most of my life including 10 years as a courier in London. I now road race(currently 3rd Cat) and cover about 320km a week av. I weigh about 80kg(6ft 3) Mechanically I am pretty good and rarely hand my bike to a shop, just for headset and BB bearing pressing, and wheel tensioning.
Here for Sale is my much loved Mavic Wheelset!
A great addition to any bike, superlight and no worries about getting blown around like on those silly zipps.
Never used for training, just racing, wheels are true.
Front - Mavic Ksyrium SLR Tubular (Currently £440 on Chain Reaction)
Rear - Mavic R-SYS Slr Tubular (Currently £815 on Chain Reaction)
Complete with Vittoria CORSA EVO CX tyres!
Come complete with QR's and Mavic Spacer, no wheel bags provided, but will be posted in a secure box!
Campagnolo Neutron Ultra Wheelset - Shimano/Sram Freehub
Ok bought these last Spring and only used for 3 months whilst staying in Italy so minimal miles and great condition. Only selling as want to try Mavic R-Sys SLR and the exalith braking surface this season. Not used since August (i have a set of Zipps i use mainly) and run true and straight and as you can see in photos, little or now ear to braking surface. These have had an easy life, probably got caught in a shower once or twice but never used or abused as i only weigh 60kg.
Pardon my ignorance, but I was looking to buy a set of these wheels to put on my Raleigh Airlite:
I was going to keep the original wheel and cassette to use on a turbo, and buy a new cassette to put on the new rear wheel - but then I noticed the Miche wheels state that they are for Shimano 10-speed cassettes, and my Raleigh is only an 8-speed.
