Fully checked and refurbished by Wheelworks and sold with full warranty.

This pair of wheels has been on our head wheelbuilder Gavin’s personal race bike for the past few years.  If you know Gav you know that his Best Bike only gets brought out when the weather is perfect so this pair of wheels is lightly used and well maintained.

Because these are being sold ex-workshop they have the normal Wheelworks lifetime warranty against broken spokes and damaged rims. You can buy with confidence.
