    Just bought a new bike for my commute, came with tubular wheelset.

    Looking for a clincher wheelset 700c. HALP!

    ^I have several front wheels and I might have a rear lying around. Nothing matchy-matchy.

    Of note, I have a pretty nice Ksyrium front that you can have for $30. It's well used but true, round, smooth, and never broken a spoke. Decals are extremely faded and the brake track is worn but has plenty of life left. Comes with fresh-as-of-6-months-ago velox rim tape.Naaaah, too uncool for the #messlyfe. I just like to hang out in loading docks and pretend to talk on my radio so that people will like me. - Mfratt

    What bike is it? It's probably fairly sick if it came with tubies.

    ryan t:What bike is it? It's probably fairly sick if it came with tubies.


    I find it to be a 'fairly sick' commuter. But from the little research i've done it's a late 80s Cannondale SR600 (I'll post pics when I'm home in the New Bike thread) so it's pretty old and has some components that definitely need some updates.

    Craig, I would definitely be interested in checking out what you've got.

    Also, I need to swap out the original cannondale steel lugged fork (believe it's a 1") for a new fork. I have a carbon fork laying around with an aluminum stem but it's 1 1/8 - so anyone have any suggestions on where to find a steel fork replacement? Idk if this is helpful, but I plan on riding this bike in all weather conditions.

    Oh cool! Only thing with a bike that old is that you can't use a modern rear wheel because of the rear spacing issue. The easiest thing to do might be to just get a new front wheel and take your chances with the rear one.
    • CommentAuthorThreePete
    • CommentTimeDec 19th 2014
     
    You're right, I didn't even think to measure the rear spacing. I doubt it'll fit a 135mm and since it's aluminum I'm sort of stuck with either finding an older rear wheel, or building up a new wheel entirely from an old hub (trying to avoid investing money into my commuter bike).

    Yeah I have a Cannondale road frame from 1990 or something and it had 126mm rear spacing for 6/7spd

    ^ Love my 7400, want something a bit newer for a Torelli I'm building up. I could probably swing DA7900 or Ultegra 6800, but as far as I can tell the 7800 is the best bang for the buck. Feel free to refute me if you disagree... I'm open minded.

    You're selling Fir Super Rialto Grids!? Too bad I'm not running Campy.

    ^^My opinion on Shimano 10 (or 11 )spd is limited to only riding Ultegra 6600 and 6700. Both of those groups are fantastic; if I was to get picky, I would say that 6600 has better rear shifting and 6700 has better front shifting. I have heard that Dura Ace is often times TOO good, and as a result can be finicky. It's like having an expensive sports car and having to keep it perfectly tuned up all the time.

    I'd skip 7900. IMO 6800 is the best value hands down. 7800 was great but I rode my 7800 enough that while cosmetically it was fine, the shifter started missing shifts (I spent a year flushing it occasionally and tuning and tweaking then said enough is enough and upgraded). 7800 is a great group and I'd run it if I had it, but I would rather go 6800 if I was buying something today. Plus 11 speed is the new standard.

    105 5800 is solid if you're looking to save even more money compared to ultegra 6800.

    How short, and how much rise? I might have something (you could have for free).All you white kids look alike when you're still covered in baby fat, so I was getting bored with the non-stop WASP parade.
