Shimano DuraAce Wheelset Problems(3 posts)

Shimano DuraAce Wheelset Problemslolobiker

Does anyone else have problems with Shimano DA wheelsets out there? I bought a used set for $400, I think the older ones WH-r7700 without the rubber bumpers between the flat bladed spokes. Anyways..they keep getting out of true pretty often, and I wasn't given the special spoke wrench
to true them myself. Anyone have any ideas or similar problems? I guess I'll eventually have to take 'em to a shop to keep getting trued!

You were ripped off my friend. Selling you a Shimano wheelset without the special spoke wrench is like selling you a car without an engine. Shimano wheelsets have been known to go out of true often. Now go to the person you bought it from, and beat him up until he gives you the spoke wrench. He deserves it.

I have the same problem, with r535 though, I posted the question yesterday, no answer yet. Please let me know if you get info about how to get a hold of this spoke wrench............. These wheels came with the bike.
