So I brought my Roubaix home a couple of weeks ago after a 2,000 mile tuneup. The wrench said he could true a badly out of true rear wheel but warned I might need new wheels if he was unsuccessful.
Well, he claimed success and I paid my $65 for the tune up and off I went. I haven't had a lot of opportunity to ride since then (travel, etc.) but it's become clear that the wheel is NOT trued (or has come out of true again) and there is a definite wobble. So maybe I need a new wheel after all.
Aside from wondering what portion of the $65 I should ask they put towards the purchase of a new wheel (if any -- am I being unreasonable believing that my $65 was largely wasted?), I could use a recommendation from y'all about wheels.
And, do I need to replace both at the same time, even though the front wheel appears good to go?
The bike is a 2007 Specialized Roubaix.
I don't want to break the bank.
