When buying extra wheels

3361 Views 10 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  st2lemans
Looking into buying extra wheels for my trackbike. Want to replace really the stock 3-spokers. I doubt I would ever use the 3 spokers again as I can't imagine wanting to use them after going either the stock OEM 5 spoke or forged March aluminum 10 spoke route. The question then is what about brake rotors and all the other junk that is normally on the wheel?

If I lean towards always using the new wheels I get I assume I can just have all the stuff transferred over to the new wheels. Everything should be compatible?

If I decide to get stuff so that I have 2 sets of wheels ready to go I've heard not to buy used rotors. So I guess looking for advice if I go down this path.

Remember price matters since this is a track bike. So no Braketech rotors or anything like that.

I went the super-cheap route. On my '97, I have the OEM 3-spokes and a set of Marchesini aluminum 5-spokes. I just swap the rotors and wheel bearings over when I change 'em. :) (I have to swap over the speedo drive flangy thingy, too, if I want the speedometer to work as well.) Someday I might buy a new set of rotors and bearings to reduce the effort to swap rims, but for now it works well enough.
