Hi all. I have been offered a set of SUN RINGLE RYDE XMB DISC 26''WHEELS for £50. is that a good price? You can see it in the pics below
I have also been offered a set of Specialized/Alex 26, for £50
These both have the cogs attached to them. The alex has 8 cog and the disks on the wheel but the SUN RINGLE has 9 cogs but no disk attached on the wheels, they have been taken off cause I got told there a bit rusty, however he still has them!
My bike is 21 gears, so that's 7 cogs. I don't think I could use a 9 cog, could I?
What wheel set is better quality out of the sun ringle and alex? I can also post pics of my bike as well if you like to see it:
Depending on how good the condition of the wheels is (in or out of true, dings/dents in the rim, bearings, etc.), either would do the job; the Sun wheelset is a shade better overall.
They will not work with your 7-speed shifters; but 8-speed cassettes are cheap, as are 8-speed SRAM shifters. I haven't seen much about 7-speed cassettes lately, they MIGHT still be available.... Are you using SRAM shifters, or was that just the bike the wheels have been on?
