Hi,
Looking for a 9 speed rear wheel for my turbo, any suggestions?
Online the cheapest I could find was 150€ from Wheelworx.
After nearly having to call the fire brigade to get the turbo tire on my back wheel I think I'll go with the spare wheel option
Thanks,
Christine

It is definitely the safer option! Is your tyre OK after it? You might need to replace it after that...

I got my turbo wheel in Cycle Plus.

Steven there does a turbo wheel set:
Which includes a 700c wheel, Tacx Skewer, Tacx Turbo Tyre and tube and a 8,9 or 10 speed cassette for €125.

Its the blue tire so very very tough! Not for outside road cycling but does the job on the turbo! Might be worth giving him a ring.

An old banger of a wheel with a cassette or able to take a new cassette will also do. I have a 15 year old wheel from a trek 1000 doing both my roadie and tt bike on the turbo. Just bought a new cassette (very straight forward to fit). Save some cash!!! Plenty in the club willing to help with set up!

If you have a look on adverts.ie there are people selling back wheels from 20euro, be well worth a look
