Hi everyone,

Much to my dissapointment I have ruined my rear wheel in a bunch mishap (was lead directly over a large pothole with no indication). Totally nailed the rim and as such it is in need of replacement. However a riding budy of mine as a 4 spoke wheel sitting in the shed, fairly sure its a Xentis (clincher) Mach 1 that he has no use for. He has offered it to me for practically nothing, just a slab of fine beer, this is very tempting as it is much cheaper than replacing the rear rim and possibly spokes etc.

Has anyone had any experience running a wheel of this type as an everyday ride on the rear? I know its not it intended use and I won't be racing with it, have a set of Dura Ace 50's for that, its really a cheap alternative to get me rolling and possibly keep me rolling.

Cheers

Will you not have to grow some ironic facial hair, wear your sisters jeans and cut your bars down to a ~30cm pipe. And no back brake of course. :wink:

Yes it'll work, no they aren't very nice to ride day to day, save some pennies and get the spoked wheel fixed. Unless its a ridiculous rim it shouldn't cost much more than £60 (open pro build?), your slab of fine beer will cost around a third of that!! (Unless said mate has no taste :wink: )
