Road Bike Wheels
We'd be nowhere without a bunch of spokes, a rim and some bearings in a hub. From workaday training wheels through to top end carbon deep sections, we have a large range to choose.
- Pre-built pairs of wheels from all the very best brands. Treat yourself to some speedy hoops and you'll never look back.
- No gears here. Just one speed for ripping around on the velodrome or for ragging around the mean streets on your singlespeed or fixie.
- Wheels and wheelsets that have been hand built by Tony our resident wheel builder. He build wheels. It's what he does. There's something special about a pair of hand made hoops.
- Factory Disc Wheels for the latest road bikes with disc brakes. Pre-built by all the big brands like Shimano, Fulcrum Zipp and Hope.
Wheels are magic. Wheels are easily as important as the frame and fork when it comes to influencing how a bike rides and feels. A lot of experienced road cyclists have several sets of wheels to call upon depending on the task in hand and the time of year. Lighter wheel rims can shave seconds of your speed in the hills and make your bike feel more responsive. Deeper section aero wheels, while being heavier can also improve your speed but the benefit will only be felt at higher speeds. Deep section rims can also handle strangely in strong winds. There's also the choice of whether to stick with normal clincher type wheels or branch out into the weird and wild world of tubular wheels and tyres.
