You might look on the archives, but I recall people suggesting $500 and some change.

I've heard and have good prices on these. You hear differing things about these place. Mostly good, but some bad. I recently got a pair for my wife at for $600. I didn't want to monkey with over seas sites and I've had really good luck with these folks over the years. Look on the deals portion of this site too.

I got my Ksyriums a few weeks ago from in the UK for $423. plus about $30.shipping. They raised their price recently to about $500. The wheels arrived in perfect condition and within 3 weeks of ordering. Ride on.

You takes your chances if you order overseas. Nuff said. Grey market may save you $ at first, but wait till you have a warranty issue.

I've got Mavic K's on my bike. I bent a spoke recently & none of the lbs have a replacement, probably because the K's are not widely available. Anyway, everyone offered to contact Mavic, who only sells to shops & get the spoke. So far, it looks like I might have to by a whole package of spokes for about $30 & a spoke wrench which I didn't get with the wheels ($15).

If you buy abroad, I want to be sure that I was getting the tools that should be included & try and get a few replacement spokes if possible.

Our LBS carries all sizes (road and MTB) and sells them individually. Too bad about not getting the tools. Watch out for the plastic tool that fits over the nipple spline - if it's not all the way on you'll strip the plastic tool. Now there is an aluminum version avail. You could call The Spokesman in Santa Cruz and I'm sure they'd be happy to sell you exactly what you want and ship it ASAP - phone # is: (831)429-6062. I've found that *blue* Loctite is required to keep the nipple from rotating out of the rim. Don't use red - it's pretty tenacious stuff.
