These wheels are simply awesome and at this price a complete steal. I'm gutted as i'm after the Shimano version but Ribble only do the Campag.

Hope of use to someone.

Sorry only just see in description you did say capag only. My bad.

Original Poster

Your bad again !! £225 with code as mentioned

Whoops

Shame they're campagnolo only.

Would have snapped these up if they were Shimano!

Nothing wrong with Campag !

I'm pretty sure you can swap the free hub on these. I know a few guys who put an 11 speed hub on a zonda

I have these, superb wheels!

As you maybe able to tell I know nothing about bicycles BUT for £225 i would want the rest of the bike including the tyres

how do I ride this?

Can someone explain why these wheels cost as much as a bike? What difference does it make? Lighter? Stiffer?

Lighter yes, stiffer yes (generally)

Also, smoother and more robust hubs (generally speaking).

If you ride up hills, you'll appreciate the weight saving.

I own these wheels, purchased from wiggle a couple of years ago.

They are a good upgrade from the stock wheels on my Bianchi Via Nirone, however potential buyers should be aware that they are very stiff which leads to quite a harsh ride quality, great for speed but not necessarily the most comfortable choice for longer rides around our battered and bruised roads!

This weight saving thing is a load of rubbish.
Do the sums yourself; doing a 'number 2' before you go out weighs more than the difference cheap and expensive wheels

Ahh but your scat isn't rotational mass (unless you include it spinning round the toilet bowl)

They have fewer spokes so people will look at them and go "ooh - those wheels must be expensive - the owner must be rich and kewel."

Bought these as an upgrade to my Campagnolo Khamsin wheels. The weight saving was around 300g and there is a massive difference in performance. They spin up quicker and turn much faster, but handle less well over bumpy surfaces (which I try to avoid anyway).

Paid £255 for my set which is a very good price, these are a real bargain! Used prices on eBay are very similar.

Probably not of interest to 99.8% of people on HUKD though, you need to be a real enthusiast to want to invest in them.

These are 11 speed already. I don't think you can swap these (Ribble certainly didn't mention that when I enquired about their availability for the Shimano version).

Turn much faster? As in steer? What sort of crazy rally cycling do you do? Can't say I've ever needed my wheels to turn faster.

Just normal road cycling. Quite nice to be able to avoid potholes more easily.

Honestly, I don't fall for marketing BSand I don't subscribe to post-purchase justification syndrome either. They genuinely perform 'better' than cheaper wheels I have used. Whether this is worth a £250 outlay depends on whether you have the cash and can justify the benefits.

People spend loads of money on photography equipment, designer clothes, expensive watches, tv subscriptions, food, cigarettes etc and if they choose to do so then that's fine. At the end of the day these wheels are cheaper than they have ever been and get very good reviews.

I voted HOT.

These are the most comfortable wheels i've ever owned. Put some 25mm boots on them and you'll float over the rough English roads.
Handling is not bad for a wheel at this price too but they do flex a bit
Shimano version can regularly be had on Wiggle for the £240 when they do wheel sales.
