Hi All,

Would anyone have an old bike wheel that they no longer have use for?

I am looking for one for Turbo that I can switch in and out.

Or does anyone have advice on where to go to get one/ what else do I need?

Thanks,

Fiona

Hi Fiona, I might have an old wheel I can give you. Will have a look in the shed tomorrow and let you know.

If you can get a wheel it will ideally:

  • Have the same number of gear sprockets as the wheel you already have.

  • Other parts you may need:

  • A tyre that is suited to your turbo, either a turbo specific or one that will survive the torture
  • A rear gear cassette with the same number of gear sprockets as your current wheel and "brand compatible" with the wheel hub of your new turbo wheel

  • Feel free to show me any wheel you can get and the bike and I will try to sharpen up the list a bit. A dedicated Turbo wheel is the way to go IMO

    HTH?

    Thanks Martina, no rush whenever you have time to check that is fine :)

    @Garry, I think I am going to need to take you up on that offer, I have no idea about any of this!

    I looked into this last year - some of the stores sell turbo wheels/ turbo wheel sets with wheel, turbo tyre, cassette (I think wheelworx might do a set). They were coming in at more than the turbo I was using at the time though!
