Looking for a cheap wheelset to get me rolling, will be used with rim brakes, pretty sure rear is 126mm but steel frame so will have some give. Will also be needing some tyres to go with them, but will buy new if nothing comes up.

Anything considered, but not looking to spend too much. Just after something to get the bike useable, can upgrade in the future as necessary.

Yeah, that's the problem.

In time I'll sort out some better wheels, but this month has been a killer for outgoings, but I know as soon as I get the bike (tomorrow hopefully) I'll want to get out & give it a try to see what I think! Hence looking for something cheap!

maybe you could get a cheapo bike on eBay or Gumtree, borrow the wheels for a bit then sell it on when you find some decent wheels? :wink:

Hi Malc,

I'd be interested in hearing some more about them. What hubs & rims are they, and how much are you looking for?

Thanks for getting back to me Malc.

Couple of questions - do Suntour and Shimano use the same freehub spline pattern? Secondly, is a Shimano mech (friction shifters) compatible with a Suntour cassette?

I am interested, am just waiting to hear back on another wheelset I've enquired about - but will keep you posted :)
