Don't forget Decathlon are quite reasonable on wheels, for example you could get yourself a front dynohub wheel & rear cassette 8/9/10 speed wheel for the princely total of £75:

They are probably not the best quality in the world but if you are handy with a spokey then they will see you good for a fair few miles. I purchased 2 of the dynohub wheels; one 26" for the daughters paper round bike (low mileage but still good after 12 months usage). The other was 700C version and I rebuilt it into a Sputnik rim with ACI spokes and also still good (and hopefully will be for a good while yet).

Thanks for the recommendations above.

I ordered these:

Front:

Rear:

https://www.taylor-wheels.com/bike-whee ... re-fh-t610


Both Zac 19 rims, Deore 610 hubs. Rear has DT swiss spokes.

Total cost Just over 104 euros which, thanks to the terrible exchange rate these days was "reduced" to only 98.48 in sterling.

Clearly they would have been a bargain a while ago.


The web page is seriously wonky, had issues even obtaining those links above due to slow speed.

My order went wonky - got an error message as I placed it and when I went to "my orders" on my account there, there was nothing to be seen, despite the fact that paypal confirmed that my credit card payment had been taken.

Still, they sorted it pretty quickly by email and reassured me that all was well.

Ordered on a Monday, shipped Tuesday, received Friday well packed by parcelforce at this end - as fast as some UK suppliers.

Haven't fitted and ridden yet but must say very good first impressions.
