Not a spammer, even if my username may sound like it.

Busted a WH-500 rear wheel so did research into current wheelset deals posting a summary of my and others' findings at ozbargain. Standouts from that list posted below as might benefit others:

$415-shipped Shimano WH-RS80-C24-CL 1521gram 24mm 16H/20H (after applying $10-off 'Newby34' coupon). Carbon-alloy composite.

$275-shipped Campagnolo Scirocco 35 1725gram 35mm 18H/21H (after applying 'paypal20' coupon). Shimano hub option.

$235-shipped Vuelta Corsa Superlite 1499gram 27mm 20H/24H (after applying $10-off 'Newby34' coupon). Similar specs to pricier Pro-lite Braccianos. SOLD-OUT!! They might get some return stock so worth rechecking.

$199 Easton EA50 1735grams 30mm 20H/24H. Decent deal if can do local MELB pickup.

$129-shipped Shimano WH-R501 1884grams 24mm 20H/24H. Good set of budget rims.

$40+shipping Alex Quando DA16 ~2100grams 21mm 32H/32H. Thief deterring boat-anchor rims good to build massive leg quads.

EDIT: Changed $40 rims from ebay link to REID cycles link with clearer shipping/local pickup options.

Try these: http://www.reidcycles.com.au/parts-acce ... heels.html

$40 + $15 postage. 10 speed. If you're in the same city as a Reid store you can pick up for free. Or if you're in Canberra I can give you the rear wheel for nothing.

PBK has 6800 Groupset for $840.99 which then comes down to $756.89 with the code 'ABN10'.

Trying very hard not to buy one.

Also 15% off clincher tyres when you buy 4. Brings the Conti GPs down to just over $30 each (but the ABN10 code doesn't work for this offer).

Tell me about it. Only thing stopping me is that my relatively new Braccianos won't do 11sp. :(

hate me now:

The good news for riders with older stock is that you just need to swap the freehub to change to 11sp in the future, we have the parts for this on hand.

Yeh I know. That extra cost is the one, very tenuous thing, which is holding me back (plus the wait; spoke to Deon this morning and he said they're about 4 weeks away). If someone wanted to buy my Bracc's though so I could get a new 11sp compat set...

LOL! dominicj, i am in the same boat as you running 10 speed braccianos as well. Merlin are doing the ultegra group set with their 11 speed wheels for just over $1200.

Oh....and I couldn't wait through the day. I just ordered the 6800 groupset! :-) after a lot of internal debate, I am convinced that the only reason I bought it is so it says "Ultegra" on the brifters.

$100 Shimano WH-R501 wheelset 1884grams 24mm 20H/24H. Best thing is they sell the individual front/rear for $50 each. Low price due to Goldcross adoing 50% off their regular prices. Some mixed stock available at Chadstone, Knox and Cranbourne, Melb.

Hmmm...are you talking the GP4000S? They are listed at $44.19, take 15% off equals $37.56 which is still a good price, I tried to buy some but keep coming up with error message
"error 500 We're sorry we are currently experiencing a problem. This will be resolved shortly."

They were definitely that price because I got some! I'm guessing they realised that they were double discounting and changed it because they were already showing them as being 60% off or something like that and $30 is a crazy price.

Seems to be an offshoot of the StartFitness site, who seem to have a decent reputation with the OzBargain community.

For those of us in Melbourne, Cecil Walker are having a clearout sale - plenty of gear at reduced prices. Topeak 20% off is what stayied in my mind (mostly because of what I'm after, but hey!)
