Thankfully most things on a wheel can be replaced individually so you may not have to buy a complete new wheel if something does go wrong. All sorts of spares are available meaning spokes, rim tapes, cassette freehub bodies, rims and bearings can all be replaced. There are also handy accessories which can be used to convert systems adapters to change disc hubs from 6-Bolt to Centre-Lock and vice versa so you don’t have to buy new hubs. Or if you have deep section road rims and normal tubes then you’ll need valve extenders to be able to pump the tyres up. This also means there are opportunities to upgrade certain wheel accessories like the latest lightweight colour coded titanium skewers or ceramic hub bearings as well as replacing worn parts.
There’s an ingenious range of spares and accessories available so have a look before you buy a new system as you may not have to with the use of some specific accessories.
