  1. Great set of rims 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 24th Apr 2017

    Thank you Mr. Bikeman. I have a 1980 Raleigh Capri and after seeing your video, decided to give them a try. Makes the bike lighter and they look great too. Rims shipped fast and arrived in good shape. Than you for the videos, they are a great help.

  2. Good Job 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2016

    Wheels arrived very well packaged and install was quick and easy. Several rides in and they are performing up to expectations.

  3. 27x 1 1/4 wheels 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Sep 2015

    A well finished alloy set of wheels for my '79 Azuki 10 speed. The old set was rusted and dented and needed replaced. Look good and saves me 3 pounds over the old wheel set.

    Bikeman saved me $22 + shipping over amazon with this deal. Will look here again for future needs.

  4. Just what the doctor ordered... 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Sep 2015

    I needed affordable, sturdy, lightweight, and true.

    I had never ordered rims or wheels online before so I was very concerned that I would receive something that I would have to take to the bike shop before I could use.

    Opened box, picked up first wheel, held it by the axel and... **SPIN** Perfectly true. Second wheel **SPIN** perfectly true. Breathed sigh of relief. All spokes tight and solid as a rock.

    I installed the new tires I bought as well (Red Super HP) and went out for a ride. Instant Happy Joy!

    I have been riding this wheelset for a few weeks now and they are still rock solid with no flats. My next set of tires will be upgraded but I expect these red Chen Chin will keep me going for a while.

    For the price I will continue to buy these rims until lady luck steers me toward a better stronger lighter rim for around the same price.

    Never fear the bikemanforu.com Thanks!

  5. Awesome replacement wheels! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 19th Nov 2014

    I bought these wheels for a resto of a Schwinn world that I have turned into a full on road racing bike. Amazing quality and craftsmanship in these wheels and they are straight as an arrow! Couldn't ask for a better replacement

    Thanks, Bikemanforu

  6. Solid wheels at a good price. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Apr 2014

    Good solid stainless and aluminum wheels (no rust for my bike that lives outside in Colo.) Great price, prompt delivery and a free pen!

  7. Best Wheels for my Old Bike 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Aug 2013

    The wheels look very good on my old bike. Your You Tube video was also very helpful. The wheels were true and ready to be mounted just as promised. They made my Jetter bike almost 3 pounds lighter. I look forward to upgrading additional parts for the old bike.

  8. My second set, not quite as good as the first set 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Aug 2013

    After upgrading my 80's Raleigh 12 speed with these wheels, I ordered a set for my wife's 76 Fuji 5 speed. The wheels arrived quickly. The wheels required no additionally truing. However one of the chrome axel nuts was threaded crooked and was unusable. No problem, I just used the nuts and washers from the old steel wheel. Also, the axel nuts have a knurled inner surface and I presume are meant to be used without a washer. At least none we're provided. When you tighten the nut on the frame dropout the knurled surface tends to make mke the nut "walk" along the slot and it is very difficult to keep the wheel aligned while tightening.

  9. Nice upgrade for older twelve speed road bike 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 31st Jul 2013

    These wheels provide a big improvement in weight and braking over the steel wheels they replaced on a 80's Raleigh Caprix CX Direct replacement without any hassles. Arrived true right out of the box. Screwed on a new seven speed freewheel and bolted onto the bike.

  10. Best choice for older road bikes 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 5th Mar 2013

    These wheels are awesome. They appear to be excellent quality, only have about 40 miles on mine so far but the miles are about to start adding up quickly with spring coming. Made my 89 Schwinn Caliente ride like new again. Watch the video on these, Bike Man knows what he's talkin about.
