Hi,

Looking around for some wheels and I think I'm going to fit some new wheels rather than look for something older.

Other than Merlincycles is there anywhere else online that does good deals on new wheel sets.

I'm looking at LX Hubs DB Spokes and Mavic X717 rims. Seems I can get a pair for £95 delivered which seems OK to me but would like to know what other options are out there.

Chainreaction often have some good deals, and wiggle may be worth a look as well.

otherwise, get the components and look at sheldon's site for easy to follow instructions for how to build your own.

If you're anywhere near Reading, I could recommend Bob Bristow. He's completely blind, but is one of the best wheelbuilders for miles around. Pm if you're interested, and I'll find you a phone number.
