I migrated this thread over from the Road section to this one. My original query related to this:

"I am after some budget but good quality aluminum clincher training wheels to suit a modern 11-cog RD set up.
Mainly used for some Saturday Slowies and Waterfall runs. I was thinking of something along the lines of a Fulcrum Quattro wheelset. However I notice Wiggle doesn't appear to stock them anymore (superceded?).
Appreciate any suggestions?"

I have since limited my options to either the Fulcrum Quattro ($360ish) or maybe Campagnolo Scirocco 35 ($300ish) wheelsets.
However this morning I was offered on Facebook a set of Fulcrum PRC wheels for only $150. Googled them but little to no direct info on this PRC model. It appears to have been built around 2011 or 2012. My concern is that it wouldn't fit my newer 11 speed cassette for the Ultegra Di2 system.
The seller claims the PRC requires a 1mm spacer which he insists means will accept a larger 11 cog set up. Any comments on this?

For $150 I'd buy them anyway. If the 11-speed doesn't fit, I'll but them off you for $150 :D

Or you could try your 11 speed cassette on my Fulcrum 5s - they require a 1mm spacer too. They probably have the same freewheel body.

I won't comment on the ability to convert (I believe it can be done) but do you mind if I ask why you would put 5 year old wheels on your brand new bike?

Bought them yesterday. If they don't fit, I'll pass them to you Tim. :)
