Fulcrum Racing 5 DB

Hi all,

I was out for a short slow spin this morning. I got distracted, and I managed to clip a traffic cone and collide with a curb. Stupid, silly, spill at low speed - annoyed with myself about it. I was sent for a tumble, with a buckle and a dent in my front wheel, a "Fulcrum Racing 5 DB".

Local bike shop mechanics say it can't be repaired, and I need a new one - recommending a Campagnolo Scirocco Front Wheel instead. I told them I wouldn't be able to cope with a mismatching wheelset.

I have found the matching front wheel on Lordgun for €185 - seems to be the only place that sells them separately and ships to Ireland. Never heard of Lordgun before, does anyone have any experience of them? Am I throwing good money after bad?

    I've used Lordgun in the past, quite a long time ago now and I can't remember what I bought, but there were no issues, and that was to the UK. I expect delivery to Ireland would be stress free.
