Wheelset Buyer Guide: What You Need to Know

Unquestionably, wheels matter!  They impact ride quality, ease of pedaling, reliability, and functionality.  The question is, once you’ve decided it’s time for a wheel upgrade, how do you know how to select the best ones?  There are different wheel types, a variety of options for tube or tubeless wheels, and ideas to consider in tubular wheels, rim shape, spoke count, and hub options.

While it seems like it can get overwhelming, it’s really straightforward.  We answer these questions on a day to day basis in our  Peak Cycles Bike Shop in Golden, Colorado.  Whether you are thinking about road bike wheel sets, mountain bike wheel sets or just getting some thoughts together on wheel buying parameters and how your wheel set will affect your overall ride and other bicycle parts, this video will guide your way.

Wheelsets demonstrated in the video are available in our shop or on the bikeparts.com website.  For your convenience, here are some suggestions to consider in your wheel set upgrade.

Ride on!
