    Have a look at what thecycleclinic offer in your price range.

    As above or Prime at Wiggle or Merlin at Merlin or Selcof at PX but not hunt because they are not an upgrade.

    Cycleclinic would be my choice especially as I've got a couple of sets of there wheels
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    At the end of the day tbey have to be deep rim - minimum of 60mm - or they are just trash not worth having.

    Do you really need an upgrade yet? How long have you had the bike?

    Any riding you're doing now in this weather, I'd use the wheels you've got and, if you buy better wheels, keep those for nicer weather.

    Yes he does. Life is too short not to have deep rims.

    You wouldn't pass up a date with TDNFNATN because you're married to Edwina Curry would you?

    This is exactly the same.

    Absolutely. I swapped my 38mm carbon wheels for some hand built alloy ones last summer - I'm now thinking 60mm would look awesome on my best bike for the warmer, drier months.

    this completely but there is absolutely no reason at all why you can't use them all year round.

    Have a look at Cero wheels. I’ve had a set for 3 years covered about 12000 miles. They have quite a few offers so keep an eye out.

    No need to. I’m lucky because I have a non-winter winter bike. In other words, my aluminium winter bike (with disc brakes) is perfectly good enough to use all of the time but I’m a tart so I also have a really nice summer one (currently on the turbo).

    Always a need to use deep rims. Always.

    If you were hooked up with TDNFNATN its not like you'd leave her at home to take the hideous creature that is Cheri Blair out is it?

    Use the deep rims dude, use the deep rims.
  • johngtijohngti Posts: 1,800
    Maybe. I had a long break-ish and got a bit scared by the wind grabbing at the front wheel when I started up again. Plus I was very overweight and very slow so it was a case of all the gear and absolutely no idea. At least now I’m built more like a cyclist so I’ll look decent on the bike in spite of being slow!

    I’ll get some wheels in the spring. Probably Chinese ones as I can’t go all out due to a lack of funds.

    Pritti drops the g’s at the end of words like robbing and discriminating. That’s annoying.

    I don't get the deep rims thing from a looks point of view. Yes, they may be faster aerodynamically, but i don't think they look better at all.

    On the right bike they look lovely though. You were right over my Pritti comment, it'd be a shame to be so wrong here...

    Imagine TDNFNATN and TDER in lab coats bickering about stuff. Anything. Just stuff.

    MF says that he thinks he would explode with joy.
  • david37david37 Posts: 1,313
    who is tder? does she have long luxurious dark brown hair, glasses thick full lips and heaving breasts under her labcoat? does she insist on wearing only fine lingerie preferably black over her tanned and toned body and under said labcoat?

    high heels and sheer hold ups of course.

    errrr were we talking about wheels?
