I've recently gone and bought an old cannondale for a bit of Wiggins action.

Problem is it's got 650c wheels and one of them is knackered.

Any ideas where there's a stockist that has 650 wheels that don't cost the earth. I don't want to spend more on one wheel than i did on the bike.

Any NOS triathlete stockists much appreciated.

ahha!

I actually need a rear one, but to be honest i could just buy it for the rim and get the wheel rebuilt.

Got any picks monsieur?

Thanks,

Boothy
