    Good point: it's for a 2010 Trek 2.1. All I know is I have 10 speeds (Shimano 105) and it says 700c on the tire.

    I think that what you want to do is to just swap out the rear tire for the trainer, not buy a whole wheel with a cassette. You might want to look on craigslist or ebay for a used wheel but most people will want to sell them as a set. It looks like the 2.1 comes with a Shimano 105-5600 or 105-5700 11-28 cassette. It's probably a 5600 if its a 2010 model.

    The Shimano 105 cassette is about $90-100 by itself and a cheap wheelset will cost you another $350.

    Somebody I know who trains a lot for triathalon told me not to buy the special trainer tires but to just go out to Canadian Tire and get a cheap 700c x 23 tire. He found them to be harder than the trainer specific tires and that they last a lot longer (not to mention cheap .. less than $20 as opposed to $70).

    I already bought a trainer tire, it was $45.
    I'm trying to avoid changing the tires all the time when the weather improves. I was hoping I could buy a used wheel from someone who upgraded.
    Anything will do as long as it fits on my bike.

    Ask some of the LBS near where you live that sponsor riding clubs
    Pedal Performance
    Donella's
    Cycle Solutions

    for example. Since you're looking for a 700c X 23 with a Shimano 105 cassette there's always somebody who would be upgrading to Ultegra or DuraAce with a new wheelset who would probably gladly sell you the rear wheel.

    You`re in Toronto so the best way to avoid some stupid Post Canada rates would be to buy REALLY local.

    Have you posted anys ads with any of the Toronto cycling clubs yet?

    I got a wheel from a LBS at a fair price and a Shimano 105 cassette for $62 at the bike show. The wheel is a bit un-true and by the looks of it it can be fixed but it's good enough for the trainer.
    Thanks for all the advice!
