    Training wheel

    I'm after a 26" wheel with QR and 8 speed cassette that I can fit a road tyre to for hopping bike onto my trainer. Anyone have a cheap one for sale or know where to find one?

    Don't know if this is any use? I know you don't want a front wheel too, but if the price was right?

    Good spot, will watch those. The bike they are going on has hyd rim brakes, I guess I can just take the disc off those ones?

    I think so, but there are plenty on the forum better qualified than me to give technical advice! Worth keeping an eye on ebay to see what's avaiilable anyway.

    You can run without discs, not a problem. You want to make usre that the rim is not a disc only rim though.
