Hi there

I am looking to purchase a 700c rear wheel to suit a shimano 10 speed cassette that would be used as a spare for use on the turbo only. Therefore nothing really fancy is required.

Currently contacting LBS but would welcome any online recommendations?

Thank you in advance !!

    Why not use an old wheel? Seems a bit mad spending money on a new wheel just to use for turbo training.

    If you don't have any old wheels lying around just buy the cheapest wheel available.

    Ask around friends/clubmates. People often have some really crappy old wheels lying about - as long as it is roundish and runs smoothish, then it will be fine for turbo use.

    Have you tried turboing on your normal wheels ? Not all turbos destry tyres.

    Even a bit of accelerated tyre wear is probably cheaper than a turbo tyre block and wheel.
