Ok i have a question. I know a guy selling a khs flite 1000 for 1300 dollars. It has full ultegra/durace and shimano 5500 wheels. I have never heard of 5500 wheels!? Are they any good?? And is this a good deal?? It also has a flite ti sattle and a carbon fork and time pedals. What to you people think? You thoughts are most excellent! Thanks!

The 5500 refers to the 105 hubs. The wheels could be built on many different rims, so it's hard to say how good they are. Typically, though, 5500 hubs were mated to Mavic CXP-21 rims with generic spokes (32). They're fine wheels for training or recreational riding.
