Buy a new bike ???
I could but I'd still have another bike which can't be used for the sake of a wheel.

Move to a country where bikes are in plentiful supply and cheap?
I was reading some of the reviews on Aliexpress (Chinese online retailer) and some people are complaining that the wheels are out of true by as much as 2cm :D

If I still lived in the UK then I would be able to get something like this:

Found some wheels!

A decent compromise between price and spec.


Out of stock though.

They wouldn't be compatible unfortunately.

I may just buy a new hub and have a go at rebuilding the wheel.

It's tricky but doable.

Life used to be so much simpler.

A mate of mine who was an apprentice with little money got hold of a pair of rims asked me if I could help him out. We got some hubs and I built a pair of wheels for him. They must have been reasonably good because next race we were in was the club 25 and for the first time he beat me.

I didn't think much of that as I had done it for free. I should have stick to the Yorkshire motto.
