DT swiss R460 rim brake 700C wheelset


This wheelset is built for all riders using Sapim spokes. It is low cost wheelset that comes with my usual guarantee for the life of the rims against fatigue spoke failure. If I am to put a weight limit on it it is 120kg. 

The DT Swiss R460 rims has a robust rim for tubed tyres. While DT Swiss describe it as tubeless compatible, I don't. A tubeless tyre fitted to it will seat and seal but you may have difficulty inflating and without a bead lock feature in the rim the tyre will probably unseat if you loose air. This means I supply this wheelset with velox cloth rim tape.

The rim is 23mm wide and 23mm deep. It is suitable for tyre from 23mm to 40 mm.

This allow me to offer a low cost wheelset. Two hubsets are offered in silver.

1) Shimano Tiagra RS400 silver hubs - 32H low cost 8/9/10/11 speed hubs with good sized ball bearings that if your service will out last the rim. If you want to improve long term reliability replace the ball bearings with grade 10 chrome steel balls and use Rock n Roll super web grease. That can be done at the first service and costs not alot. 

2) Novatec A171/F172 silver hubs - these are offered in 32H drilling (lower spoke counts are available) with a Campagnolo 9/10/11/12 speed or Shimano 8/9/10/11 speed freehub bodies. These are cartridge bearing hubs where replacement bearings cost £5. They are 120g lighter than the Tiagra hubs but the reason to pick them is for Campagnolo freehub compatability. Black hubs can be substituted at no extra cost. 

The spokes used are silver sapim race. Weight is around 1935g with the Tiagra hubs and 1815g with the novatec hubs

COVID 19 update. Overseas shipping is now with a courier only. UPS or Parcel force.

U.K policy

Orders placed in the afternoon normally get sent the next workday where possible. Orders placed before noon are often sent the same day but this is not guaranteed. Priority is given to Royal Mail Special delivery items always. 

Same day disptach is not guaranteed due to volume of mail order. In general we are not operating with big delays in dispatch if any.

  • Standard shipping is with Royal Mail using there 24 service. Cost £3. This is not a guaranteed service and takes 1-7 days normally but can be longer. The tracking number is not tracking but is a conformation of delivery code. If the item has been delivered to you or a neighbour then the tracking shows something otherwise it won't. If the item is needed urgently then pay for the courier/special delivery. in the case of the items recorded as delivered but you claim non delivery or delivery attempted but parcel never available for collection no refund or replacement goods are possible. R24 is not a tracked or insured service. We are only liable if delivery never happens. We wait 30 days before declaring am item lost. If this is not acceptable to you then pay for Special Delivery which is tracked and insured. We are not longer taking the hit for lost items because you want to spend less on postage. 
  • For a £7 surcharge, a next day (not sunday) tracked service (from dispatch) with Royal mail special delivery is used. You get an hour delivery slot by text. It's a fine service and worth the money. This only works for items up to 2kg. beyond that it gets very expensive and Parcel Force 24 tracked is used. This is fully insured service so in the event of non delivery a claim is possible.
  • Rims are sent by courier only- cost £10. UPS is used. A phone number and email address must be supplied to allow me to book in. This service can also be picked for smaller items that you want delivered by UPS.
  • Wheels shipping cost is £15 (cost of courier + cost of the box) next day. To NI, Scottish Islands, Channel Islands, Isle of Man and that is a two day service.


Due to the disruption in postal services during 2020, misdeliveries, customs issues and long delays all overseas shipping is now with Royal Mail Internation al Tracked and Signed (europe only) and  UPS or Parcel Force tracked services. Parcel mass and destination affect price. So the following applies. I do not offer cheaper slower mail services anymore. Please don't ask as it means you have not read this page. There is no circumstance where i will use a cheaper service. 

The website will provide shipping rates at checkout.

The import charges you will face are and these will be levied by the shipping carrier or by your customs authority in advance of delivery. Customs clearance will add to shipping times. 

You will be billed for

Import duties which are set by the tarrif code we declare. Tarrif rates are normally published on government websites. "Free trade agreements" affect this and for EU customers there are no duties as tarrifs are set at zero for goods like our wheels that originate in the U.K. Goods that originate in the E.U  and are exported back yo the E.U attract tarriffs. Good made outside the e.u and sold into the E.U attract tarrifs. The declared value in GDP will be converted to your countries currency by the monthly rate published by your tax authority. 

Customs clearance fees -these vary from country to country and also vary by declared value in some juristictions. 

VAT or sales taxes and applied to  the total of the declared value of goods, customs clearance charges and import duties. 

This shop declares the total paid for the goods for customs value, no exceptions. We will not declare low values as thats fraud and we will not be party to it.

 A word of warning once an parcel has been shipped any import charges are your reponsibility. Refusal to pay these charges to the parcel carrier mean you loose the right to an automatic refund. We refund at our discretion minus any charges we are levied by the parcel carrier. These charges cannot be disputed by us. We also reserve the right to apply a 10% restocking fee on top of any charges applied to us for the return of the parcel. Therefore once shipped charges must be paid. We can accept no liability if the parcel is lost after charges have been refused to be paid.
