Item: Ambrosio Nemesis tubular rims laced 32h 3x to Chris King R45 (Shimano) hubs in black with silver spokes
Price: $500 - no offers
Postage Available: No - Sydney collection only.
Classic rims laced 32h 3x to Chris King R45 (Shimano) hubs in black with silver double-butted spokes (pretty sure they're Sapim Race).
On the rare occasion you can find these to buy in Australia they will cost upwards of $1300 (circa $200-275 for the rims, $750-850 for the hubs, $250-350 for the wheel build). These have had a very good life and have only covered around 1500km, but one wet ride wore through some of the anodising (as is normal with these rims) meaning they don't look quite so shiny and new (which also means a much cheaper price to you!).
I will supply with tubs which will be the pictured Schwalbe Milanos - of which the rear is yet to be used - or I can remove them for a small discount.
COLLECTION FROM THE NORTHERN BEACHES (Fairlight) ONLY!
The traditional classics wheel, an awesome training wheel and probably the most comfortable stiff wheel you'll find - I weigh 82kg and they do not display even a hint of flex, even with the hardest of efforts! I'm only selling them because I've switched to Campag and have some Royce hubs on the way for a new wheel build.

Jeepers, still no takers?...
How about if I include personal delivery within 20km of the Manly area?
Still available - anyone want to make an offer?...
Can see the money they are worth but the cheap price of carbon wheels just kills great wheels like these. Would love to own them
Why would you ever ride carbon over these?? Weight aside, there's no contest - laterally stiffer, smoother, more comfortable, and with better braking to boot.
So very very tempted by these Rich! Wish I had cash on hand
Got anything worth swapping / part-exchanging Snicks?
Whilst I would love the wheels and know how nice they are to ride, they are heavier, not aero and not as fast as a 50mm carbon wheel and braking...gee i dont know.
Wanna know why I use them? Because (their comfort and stiffness aside) training on heavy wheels makes your bike feel *incredible* come race day / sportive / gran fondo / that big ride you planned with your mates when you put your 'fast wheels' on.
It's like a rite of passage - you can allow yourself the luxury of the fancy fast wheels because you know you've done the hard yards on these.
They're being replaced with an almost identical wheelset - H+Son TB14 rims on Royce hubs - I'm only selling because I run Campag now and it'll cost me $300+ to get the parts to switch the rear hub over.
I'd be on them pretty quickly, if I weren't also all campy. Bloody nice wheels that will keep going and going.
Good luck with the sale.
Been silently keen on these as a good comfortable training wheel.
After reading this: http://velonews.competitor.com/2013/04/bikes-and-tech/the-torqued-wrench-ambrosio-nemesis-wheels-expire-in-the-pro-peloton_281545
Article seem negative that carbon is taken over, but it talks about how good they are. But I'm interested, you got a PM from me.
Rich .. I have so much want for these wheels but ... alas, no need.
What a sweet wheelset & a bargain. Hope they find a good home.
Lastly, and I know how dumb this sounds and I don't understand the logic either but you'll find it much easy to get almost as much money by stripping the wheels and selling the hubs alone. Often people will pay for for just the hubs than they would for a built and usable wheel.
I'm starting to think along the same lines - it gives me the additional benefit of a spare set of rims for tub stretching duties too.
