I'm just starting out with my first build of a new summer bike and I'm now looking at wheels and tyres.

I have a figure in mind of £200.00 for both and I'm looking at Fuldrom Racing 5's and Schwalbe Ultrem ZX's as a combo...

Before I tale the plunge. Can I do better for the price I have in mind?

    I've got a set of excellent condition American Classic 420 Aero 3's (the rear has ceramic bearings fitted less than 200 miles ago) that i was just talking to a mate about selling - bit too nice for my winter bike really and being 34mm deep, might catch the winter gales a little more than a "normal" rim. I have full carbon summer wheels so cant see me using them. I was thinking around £200 for them if you're interested (or anyone else is).

    I've just taken some Fulcrum Racing 7's off my mate for the winter bike and certainly cant knock the Racing 5's at all - very nice wheels when i looked at a set on a bike.

    Could you PM me your email address - i'll take some now and send them on. The wheels are on my just built winter bike in the kitchen (finished it Monday) so apologies for the tyres / cassette fitted and so on. They are Shimano / Sram freehub by the way.

    There's an overall pic here at the bottom of page 1....

    can you self build seeing as your putting the bike together. you can get some nice rims and decent shimano hubs for under £200. i built some dt465 on 105 hubs. not the most aero but lightish rims that should be durable with double eyelet and plenty of spokes. look nice too.
