deep v's (or others) in Perth

Postby PeterM » Sun Jan 25, 2009 3:00 pm

Gday all

I'm after a new set of strong wheels for my road bike and have basically settled on the Velocity deep v's.

Can anyone recommend where to get hold of these/order these in Perth?

Alternatively, if anyone wants to recommend wheels (< $500) for someone weighing 97 kg please go ahead.

Thanks a bunch, Pete.

PS. I've found the deep v's online for $369 but would prefer to get them locally in Perth.

G'day Peter,

Welcome to the forum.

If you can find a shop that you have confidence in when it comes to wheel building, just get them to make a set for you. Many LBSs can and will do this for nothing if you buy the hubs, spokes and rims through them. The LBS will quote around $100-$110 per rim, pretty much everywhere in Perth.

It's also pretty easy to do it yourself, and I'd suggest this is the cheapest option because you can buy all the bits you want at a cheap price online (except the Deep-V rims ... :? ). That's how I built my disc brake compatible Deep-V wheelset.

Think outside the double triangle.

Hi I bought my deep V rims from Balmoral cycles a few weeks ago. They are based in East Vic Park

I went to Bike Force South Perth for my Velocity wheels. They were an excellent price and great after sale service like setting the rear wheel up perfectly on the bike.

Why not try the KinLin XR300s or one of the many other names they have such as niobium 30's ? they are used in more than a few wheelsets and can be found in pretty expensive wheelsets. They are similar profile to deep V's but not quite as boat anchorish as the Deep V's. I havent managed to find them on their own yet in Aus but here they are in Token C30A guise. ... under__380

Thanks everyone - very much appreciated. Settled on just replacing my rear wheel with a Mavic openpro/105 hub setup. Getting it built next week while I'm over east - will let you know how it goes!

Cheers again, Pete.
