Ksyriums or Custom???(8 posts)

Ksyriums or Custom???TJohn
Aug 20, 2001 9:33 AM
Hi all, I have it narrowed down to these 2 wheelsets and I wanted one last input from you folks. I can get a set of Ksyriums for cost from a friend for about $520 shipped, or I can have my LBS build me a wheelset that has Velocity 15mm dish semi-aero rims, 32 hole 2.0 XL DB spokes, w/ King hubs for $650 tax included. The custom wheels would come in at about 1560 gms and the K's are 1600 gms. Given the price of the K's, is it a no brainer to get them over the custom?? Serviceability would definately go to the custom and performance would be abouth the same right?? Thanks.

From reputation, the K's are great wheels - but don't spend too much. Try out www.probikekit.com for $423 K's.

Wow, much lower price than I have seen elsewhere. Have you, or anyone, experience with www.probikekit.com?

and they were true to their word as to the shipping and my entire order. If you're going to get these you'd better e-mail them today and put your order in. They're going fast! All they have left is Shimano/clincher veersions left. I got in on the 2nd batch as they were sold out of the first batch when I placed my order. They said they would be in in 2 weeks and they were!

I have purchased clothing and tires (tyres?) from them twice. Good service, great prices. Check out the deals board (where i posted this K price) where another poster had just received his K's from probikekit the day before.
I think you answered all of your own questions correctly... (nm)Mike K
