Need new wheels, help!
#1
I have Shimano wh r5oo's on my bike that are bent. I would like to replace with similar and need suggestions. I got the bike cheap and don't want to spend a fortune on rims. Is Ebay ok? Do I need a specific size? I have a 9 speed cassette and 700 x 23 tires.
Thanks, Steve

G'day
Seems to a be a topical topic at the moment (was that bad English or what? Smile). You might find this discussion in the Bicycles Network Australia forums helpful. You will find it http://bicycles.net.au/forums/viewtopic.php?t=7724
Just one question. Have you gone to your LBS to see if the wheels can be re-trued? Might be the cheaper option.
