The affordable 700c (28") front wheel.
Had these on my Triban 500SE and after a few wet rides the rear hub got noisy and when I stripped it down water had got into the bearings and they were rusting. After 6 months of moderate riding they were no also no longer particularly true and I had to upgrade. They are unfortunately the Triban 500's Achilles heel as the rest of the bike is fantastic.
Thank you for your feedback regarding this wheel. I agree that earlier versions were not good enough in some cases. B'Twin has improved the seals and freehub body on the current version (we now have far fewer returns than before) and an all new hub/rim is in development and will be released in the near future (date TBC).
