Must be March new kit on order again – WHEELS by Swiss side

Posted: March 22, 2013 in Bike kit, Planet X, Swiss side wheels, Upgrade's (bike), Wheels

I’ve been toying with upgrading my very heavy training wheels, they came with the planet x never been happy with them but to be fair they went through the winter months and seriously iffy roads around the Warwickshire, Leicestershire area well (except for my bro running into the back wheel and buckling it) OMEGA HERE very heavy (2200g with skewers) so should be a decent saving

So you only live once and i like small companies that are starting up, there website reads well and there wheels look very tidy, promotional video is excellent.

placed the order 21st March 2013 – hope there here next week (not that I have any tyres for them, that’s the next issue) remember the name Swiss side and check there website HERE, I’ve gone for the HEIDI model spec below 269 euros (Swiss company)

swissside fitted with Vittoria rubino pro 3 for summer training
