Cyclocross/Gravel wheelset?

3 posts in this topic

Hey, recently bought a specialized Tricross sport disk for a bit of road riding, as the mountain bike feels too weighty for rolling around the streets on.

I Picked up an Orange RX9 frameset and used all the specialized bits to build it, only thing is the wheels are a bit past it, and I fancy something a bit wider/more versatile so I’m not restricted to just paths and roads. Any pointers? This side of bikes is very foreign to me and I haven’t got a clue what’s good or not.

Im after a decent set of wheels that don’t cost the earth, need to be disk compatible and fit 135x10 and  110x10 with QR axles.

 

Any help would be great.

Thanks!

Halo wheels have good offering in the gravel genre:

Also the  Mavic Aksium disc wheel set is about the best budget wheel set going. Rims aren't that wide but suitable for a 38c/40mm tyre no problem. 

Wide rims are only as good as the frame clearance you have. 

First off invest in some decent tubeless gravel tyres. Schwalbe G-one all round is a good starting place. 

Hope this helps
