I have this front road wheelset which has a Shimano Dura-ace hub (quick-releasehub), a Mavic GL 330 and Wheelbrothers logo on the rim, which i think means the wheelset has wheelbros spokes and a mavic GL 330 rim.....so, whats the setup worth? Its in awesome condition....i tried to look around online, but came up with nothin much..

Put it on Ebay for a starting price of $1.00 and a reserve of $45. GL 330's have not been made for nearly 10 years, maybe more. Make sure that you list the # of spokes, style of spokes and total wheel weight.

...to whom you are selling the wheel(s). There was a pair of wheels going for about $50 the other day online. I've also seen ads for wheelsets like your front (D/A/GL330) up to about $200.

Problem is, no one is looking for your wheel. Its a buyers market for tubular wheels.

If you don't want it, and you find someone that does, its going to go for whatever the buyer decides they want to spend.

If you want to sell this wheel, ebay may be your best option. If you need a tax deduction, donate the wheel to your local velodrome (assuming...).

Or, you can always unlace the wheel, keep the hub, sell off just the rim, then rebuild the wheel with a clincher rim... Depends on whether you need another front wheel or not.

That help?

$50-$70 if it's in very good shapeMR_GRUMPY

If the rim is "well used", but still in good shape, you might be able to get only $35 for the wheel. A rear wheel would be worth $75-$100, in good shape.
