Sending Wheels to Europe

Back in the summer I wrecked a pair of metron carbon wheels descending Angliru (its not a descent you can let the bike run as its very steep with very sharp hairpins), they heated up, the laminate melted and the side walls expanded outwards. Scary!

Anyway FSA say if i return them they will replace the rims, trouble is the factory is in Italy and the cheapest courier (DHL) I can find is £50 odd

Anyone know of a cheaper alternative?

  • RM max size is 60/46/46 so sadly a wheel box is too large for them! Good shout though

    if they are going to replace the rims anyway, ask them if it's ok if you strip them down and just send everything but the rims

    then it'll all fit in jiffy bag or box small enough for normal mail
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny
