New wheels?(10 posts)

New wheels?Schaf
Jul 31, 2001 11:00 AM
I have a 2001 Cannondale R600, and it comes stock with CXP-21 rims laced to CODA crap hubs. The wheels are heavy, slow and unreliable, and I am looking for a good replacement. Ideally I'd like to spend less than $350 and weight and durability are my primary concerns. I've been considering the Spinergy Spox R2, Mavic Cosmos, Sun Pro Race, and Rolf Vector Comps. Let me know which you would reccomend, or if there is something I don't have on that list what it is. I weigh 165. Thanks for all your help. Michael-

Ulgegra hubs rebuilt on the CXP21s or new Open Pros.

The wheels may be heavy and unreliable, but it is usually the rider who is slow.

First of all, you have a reserve, so you don't have anything to worry about. Second, You don't have a picture of your bike. I would never buy a bike from ebay without an actual photo. If you want to get the maximum price for your bike, post at least 4 or 5 pictures. Show the components, wheels, faults(chain stay scratches). Your asking someone to spend upwards of $1500 on a bike, but you won't show them pictures of the actual bike they're buying. Just my 2 cents.

I've sold and purchased items on eBay and I don't even read the bike ads that don't have pictures. The other thing is... some people wait until the last few seconds to bid. It's called sniping. You try to outbid someone else before they have a chance to respond and the auction is over. I'll bet you see a flurry of activity in the last minute.
I bet not...duh

really expensive bikes tend not to sell on e-bay... plus, he's got only a 3-day auction and is selling from Canada.

This sounds like a little creative advertising here. This bike is posted in the "hot Deal" section here at Roadbike Review.
