Hey all. I’m in the market for a new polo bike and I’m considering getting a Dolan with some Pake forks.
I’m stuck on what wheels to get though, my Mavic 317x 36h 26inch have been awesome, really light and strong but I’m guessing that a 700c wheel would require a stronger deeper rim and a higher spoke count. What are 700c folk running?
@gponx perro wheels are decent for the money.
Otherwise the conventional chukkers to the the hubs of your choice.
For £60 I have some used 48h BLB to 700 Chucka rims if you are interested?
Seen a bit of action but am sure they would be good for many games to come.
Can post pics.
Second dibs if sanyi dont take them!!.
I'll say go for Max Power forks as Pake ones are quite flexy.
BLB hav velocity deep Vs for £10 atm. Only bold colours though
I got some pake forks
They are flexy but nice and light
Geo is good too
I used mavic 319, they have some big dents now but still solid. Got them from Evans in the ex-demo/clearance section.
Planet X have super cheap 29er rims right now too.
This is them.
48h BLB King Hubs / Velocity Chuckas
They were used ss with rear brake but the hub is fixed/fixed. Could be used with front brake but surface is not machined.
In E10 just after Orient Way.
So sanyi is not taking the wheels ?
Can collect next week
He hasn't said anything, he may want new wheels.
Will PM you.
Hey Guys. Thanks for your input. Il probably go for some Perro. I’m still concerned about weight though having ridden a bike with some on.
n3il, what spoke count are your Mavic rims and how well do they block a ball? What hubs are you using?
I've got a regular fixie hub on the back and a Shimano clone disc hub on the front. 36 is ok for shot stopping I think, but if I was building them again I might go 32h and get some of the French clear wheelcovers.
The rims have loads of lovely dents in them, but I'm on disc brakes so it doesn't matter.
