700c polo wheels, what’s hot right now?

Posted on
  • 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.

  • Ok

  • 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?

  • 36h
    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.
