Another race wheel thread

Postby princessbumblebee » Mon Mar 07, 2016 4:32 pm

I've been looking at cheapish race wheels and I quite like these Reynolds Forty Six, which I have found cheap here:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/351667870454

My only question is why so cheap?? At approx $1300AU plus shipping, they're nearly $1000 under RRP on that link, despite being new. I've researched the seller who is apparently reputable.

I'm really keen to get them but I feel like I may have missed something?

All I can think of is that they might be a much older year model, but with the weight and specs I don't think that would be a big issue. Advice gratefully received.

Brand: Reynolds

Model: Forty Six rim

Size: 650C


Just making sure you're after a 650c wheel, rather than the standard 700c?

Yes, looking for 650s which reduces the range somewhat (but doesn't seem to typically reduce the price!)

Reynolds build quality is pretty ordinary. I'd keep looking.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.

Including shipping and GST, you're gong to pay over AUD1700. Plus the freehub is 10 speed.

Thanks for the responses. I didn't get the wheels. In fact, I still haven't got any!
