Jamespir - It amazes me that someone with such a high post count could be so arrogant. People on here are just plain weird. If you know nothing about the wheels and how much proper bike wheels should cost then WHY DID YOU VOTE - YOU HAVE NO IDEA IF IT'S A HOT DEAL OR NOT :x

i know nothing about bikes - my £100 job from the local bike shop has served me well, but I do know that you can spend a fortune on wheels, forks frames etc - so this is probably a steal.

I'll vote hot. just to counter the cold votes. It's people like you that put many of us off from posting deals.

I'd say that this deal is warm, the planet x model Bs are almost exactly the same weight for less and Mavic Aksiums don't weigh a lot more and are totally bomb proof.

The Model B's aren't really the same quality as these though.
The hubs on the ultegra are superior, plus they're 20h rear and 16h front.
There's got to be a reason that the RRP is £400! lol
Sweet wheels, If I hadn't just bought a pair of Halo's (for almost the same price! :x) I'd be very tempted!

Nice, not cheap even when it does go on sale! What bike you have?

Yea I got the aerorage track in purple but I'm maybe regretting not buying the non-machined aerotrack rims instead.
At the time of purchase I was running 95 gear inches so I needed a front brake.
Today I dropped down to 73gi, maybe even getting a new sprocket and putting it <65gi. So I might run brakeless. The non machined rims look so sweet. So deep!
Ah well, at least I have the option to run brakes... :oops:

Very tempted. For the Planet X B.s, I have gone through 2 rears in the last year, the problem with them is the the freehub is made from aluminum, and groves extremly quickly, the shimano ones are made of steel, and don't.
#12
Very good price, don't forget the groupset's only £550 too, £20 up on what it was a couple months back, but still a bargain.
#13
I've got the standard wheels on my Boardman Team Carbon (Ritchey DS Pro's?). Would these be an improvement? Are we talking about a reduction in weight mainly?
#14
Great price for a great product. Voted hot by me.
#15
will these replace my bent back wheel for dh and dirt jumping?? lol

voted hot cos i am one of the few people on here that understand bikes and use them for what the better quality ones are made for and its a good price!

Yes they will fit fine

and there we go for the first post off someone not understanding what is for sale lol.

I was joking when i said will they fit on my bike i do downhill riding (dh) and dirt jumping these wheels are for road bike only like racers and hybrid bikes these wheels will prob both bend to hell on my first jump lol.

but for a road bike they are very good at this price.

next there will be a cold vote lol.

this site is for finding deals cheap to let other members know about, if people do not understand about real bike riding and the components used then dont vote at all.
A cold vote is suppose to be because the deal is at a higher price than you have seen it not because you have not got a clue about bikes and think my argos bike for £80 that i use to goto work on is way cheaper and gets me from a-b ok so this deal is rubbish because the component cost way more than my argos bike.

if you know abo

I would suspend the membership of people like him, most especially as his reason was his total ignorance as to whether it was a good price or not and simply seemed a lot of money . This site is all about helping each other to save money.

Don't vote if you haven't got a clue about prices!!!

Cheaper to lose a bit of weight

myOpinion2
Mavic Aksiums don't weigh a lot more and are totally bomb proof.


Errr no! Bought a pair of 2009's 2months back to replace my old Alex DA22's. The Alex rims had done over 4000miles in a year and apart from the front trying to loosen several spokes whilst riding after truing it has been spot on ever since. The rear on the other hand has been trued several times and still goes out of true if it senses a hole 200m away oh and it developed a high spot.

The Mavics, well both were slightly out from the word go but the rear hasn't got any worse over the 700odd miles but the front :oops: within 500miles it was out by 3-4mm and everytime i get out the saddle the spokes ping like crazy, the old oil trick would quieten them down for a while. So i got the front trued & within one ride (21miles) it was already out of true, 80miles later and its looks like someone has ridden over the damn thing.

Bad wheel or needs a full turn on every spoke? the lbs can have the crappy thing back again as its not fit for purpose. One thing i do know is they are not bomb proof! and Google agrees if you dig deep enough.

Oh and as for the Ultegra 6700, bargain at that price.
#23
Hot deal, but I picked up a pair of Cosmic Elites this year so have no used for these (although these would be better for climbing). I also bought a pair of Easton XC Ones (so I'm now poor!) and have had my fill of wheels.
FWIW my Mavics from CRC were out of true upon arrival too and are heavier although I have been riding a mates set of the same Mavics for 2 years and they are built like bunker, if not a little weighty.

I wouldn't touch the Mavic Aksiums, even though they seem to be the stock wheel of choice on most midrange racing bikes.

Easton wheels are generally the best,i nearly got some ea90 carbon ones a few weeks ago:thumbsup:

Thanks for the info - my plan is sell my bike after a year (cycle to work scheme) and a get a new one so probably not worth upgrading if the difference is only a 'bit'.

Added some H&R.

The XC ones were for my MTB. I've read mixed reviews of Easton's but decided it was worth the gamble. Only given them light (racing) use so far so its too early to tell.

I have a pair of Mavic CXP-22s on my Specialized Tarmac Elite. Would I really notice much of a difference when using these 'bad boys'?

i use to have cpx 22's there not bad for light use as mine went badly untrue and had a few jumps in them,they would be an excellant upgrade or if your after a cheaper wheelset american classic topanga are good alround wheels,about 100£ on ebay,i've got them on one of my bikes and are good value for money wheels
hope this helps:thumbsup:
#31
Depends on your hubs how much of an upgrade, I have a pair of cxp-22s on hope pro hubs and they are a nice set of all round wheels, I think I could maybe save 75-100g a wheel changing to these (remember cassette weight not included), and the rim profiles are pretty similar...

arent hope pro hubs for mtb??,also bike shops usaully charge around £60 to swap over a set of hubs,so better of just upgrading the whole wheel:thumbsup:

I've ridden well over 4000 miles on a pair of Alex DA22s rims; the front wheel is still as straight as a die with absolutely no adjustments whatsoever, same goes for the rear except with only a few very minor adjustments:thumbsup:
#34
Naa Hope pro hubs available for road as well (http://www.allterraincycles.co.uk/product/110459.html) , was just saying if he had decent hubs already then these wouldn't be a huge upgrade.

Yes, I'm kind of surprised too, would have expected those wheels to have snuffed it a few thousand miles back:-D, but they just keep on rolling and thats despite the bearings NEVER having been greased:-D Lots of potholes round these parts too, its not as if I do all my cycling on super-smooth tarmac:-D; might be something to do with tyre pressure:thumbsup:

HAH. I can do better.

I know where I can buy a WHOLE bike for the same money.
