PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Shimano WH-R501 A Clincher Wheelset

Shimano's budget-friendly wheelset offers an impressive level of performance combined with a superb new look.

The Shimano R501 wheelset features a 24mm rim depth that's strong and aerodynamic without weighing you down, and a built-in wear indicator lets you know when it's time for a replacement. Traditional stainless steel straight gauge spokes with 20/24 front/rear, laced radially and 3x respectively for a great combination of strength, stiffness and style.

The hub design uses trickle down technology from Shimano's high-end groups with a heavy-duty steel axle and ball bearings for easy serviceability. A new seal system delivers reliable all-conditions performance, and sets this model apart from its predecessor, the R500.

700c (15-622mm ISO). Shimano/SRAM 8/9/10 speed compatible.

These will get you around town if you absolutely can't spend any more money. Considering the price, they are perfectly fine. They stay true well enough, but they do flex a lot in the corners and are heavy as snot. The bearing loading is less forgiving than the higher model Shimanos. Fast and loose is the motto; you have to invoke a little play to escape friction at all. If you get these, please open a savings account for better wheels later.
