Hi All

I'd like to get some new 27" lightweight wheels for my Rory O'Brien.

I'd be grateful if you could give me some ideas; I'm not sure what is available nowadays or where from; or how much they might cost.

Can anyone suggest any lightweight wheels which are suitable for fairly fast roadwork on a fairly lightweight frame ? I'd also be pleased if I could find out a source(s) for such wheels. Within reason, cost is not really an issue.

I'd also like to know any recommendations for tyres.

Any 27" wheels you can buy today are going to be poor on all fronts. No decent tyres are available either.

Location: In the Woods. . . is about your best bet. Not cheap, and their stock changes regularly, but this is the best place to dig for near unobtainable patterns. .. :wink:

about the best are Panaracer Paselas, but they are a bit touring / audax flavoured.
