I have just learnt a lesson in spur of the moment, late night, online shopping!!!
I needed a new cassette, chain and tyre so went online to order and then saw a set of wheels that seemed good value. As a new bike is on the cards in the new year, I didn’t want to spend too much as this current bike will be my “spare”. Onto the order the wheelset went without much thought (or thorough reading of the entire description!). Credit card charged and off to bed!
Order arrived yesterday and my wife gives me a call at work to say that my “cassette, chain and tyre” have arrived in a box that seems “very large” for just three small items!!!
I get home and open the box and it takes approximately three seconds to come to the realisation that I have ordered a wheelset which has a 15mm front hub! My fork is 9mm!!! In desperation I check the online description and sure enough (now clear as day!!!) it states 15mm hub!!!!
Now it seems that there is no conversion kit! My “good value” excuse has gone in the eyes of my wife so no chance of picking up a new fork!! I now have a five day weekend of which most of will be consumed listening to sarcastic comments from my wife about bargain hunting and how pretty those wheels look all nice, clean and unridden!!!!
