Bicycle wheels come in a wide range of sizes from 12" wheels found on smaller Kids Bikes to larger 29" Mountain Bike and 700c Road Bike wheels. Larger wheels are normally faster and more stable at speed and their larger contact patch improves grip too. Smaller wheels are normally lighter, more manoeuvrable and have quicker acceleration.
Wheel sizes are defined by the country that first popularised the style of bike that used them - so you'll see some imperial and some metric measurements listed. Wiggle includes the ISO standard in brackets after each for ease of comparison.
The only thing between you and the road, you’ll want to keep your wheels in top condition. Wiggle stock a wide range of hubs, quick release spares and more to ensure that you can keep on rolling if the parts your wheels came with become worn or damaged.
Replacing components can be cheaper and more efficient than buying a new set of wheels when things need fixing up. It’s best to be prepared when you’re reliant on your bike, so having back up parts is essential for the serious rider.
Wheel components come in a variety of styles. Whether you need a functional replacement sprocket for your commuter set up or a top of the range front hub for a finishing touch to your dream bike, we have something for everyone, so make sure you stay prepared!
