Wheel master WTB wheels?
Anyone tried these wheels? I am north of 250lbs and need a cheap wheel set! It seems that even if my pocket were larger, I would still have this issue... But I am a 6'4 dude that weighs about 250 and just looking to build a basic classic steel frame roadie. (Peugeot)
Here are the wheels that I am considering
The rear is likely spaced for 135mm.
The tires that are intended for them (622-28/40) may be too large to fit in your frame.
You probably want to look for "road" wheels, not Hybrid.
Also check the spacing on the front. A lot of older bikes have <100mm spacing on the fork.
They DON'T spring well!
Some front hubs will have a 2-3MM spacer on each side that can be removed (and shorten the axle) to make them fit.
With that additional info, any thoughts in the WTBs?
This should be a much better set.
The CR-18 rims are quite stout.
They'll true & TENSION for $20 additional. Money well spent, and you're still $10 ahead.
