The quality of your bike depends a lot on the quality of the wheels you choose. In addition to the size of the wheel, it is necessary to make a choice also by evaluating components such as spokes and hubs. Today the offer is diversified by materials and dimensions and takes into consideration especially the shoulder of the rim, the channel and the braking track.
In the classic clincher rims, the channel, the inner part of the rim, will house the inner tube. The lateral shoulders of the rim allow the tyre to be covered and kept in place. In tubular wheels the tyre is glued with mastic, in tubeless ready wheels, since the inner tube is not provided, the shape for tyre mounting is very important.
The circle measurement system can be indicated with an American standard in inches, with ETRTO or with the French size. Aluminum wheels and carbon wheels are the subject of debate among enthusiasts.
