I'm looking for an absolute beater of a 700c wheelset. Building a rat bike for a friend on a shoestring, which is going to be kept locked up outside at all times, so I'm going for the absolute cheapest possible option.
Tyres and freewheel would be nice but are not necessary.
Anything that spins half-true really. Might even consider wheels with a couple of broken spokes.
So... If any of you are sitting on a used, maybe damaged 700c wheelset you've been thinking about chucking, now's its chance to be resurrected for life again. Please send me pictures/descriptions with your best offers and location.
I've got a set. I have no idea what it is but its riding smooth and has a decent freewheel on it. Brake track has lots of life left. Just needs a clean. I can have a look for some tyres. Crap pic for now. I just want them gone so I'm sure we can work something out. In Cambridge but I've got a box.
Looks good, pm'd :)
If those don't work out, have a look at these:
Hey Dave. These seem a bit steep for my budget although I'm sure they're nice wheels. (Which is not necessarily something I'm after haha).
My bad for not specifying in this post - I'm looking for something around £20, which I know is a big ask for a wheelset but it's really for the most basic commute function which will have a very high probability of getting nicked. Cheers
No worries dude, I don’t think I can let them go that cheap but could negotiate a bit. Get back in touch if you need!
I've got a front wheel you can have for a tenner posted.
