Hi, got a Tyban 3 for Christmas but on third run completely knackered the rear wheel, due to it being made of cheese or other such dairy product. Is the Shimano r501 a good upgrade and will it be durable? I've only got £100 to spend and I have seen these for £80 at Merlin and Ribble. Any advice on a robust, cheap wheelset?
