(SYD) Ambrosio Nemesis / Chris King Wheelset

Item: Ambrosio Nemesis tubular rims laced 32h 3x to Chris King R45 (Shimano) hubs in black with silver spokes
Price: $725 - all offers considered
Postage Available: No
Details:

TIme for change so I'm selling my Ambrosio Nemesis tubular wheels.

These classic rims are laced 32h 3x to Chris King R45 (Shimano) hubs in black with silver double-butted spokes (not sure whether they're Sapim or DT, but I can easily check).

On the rare occasion you can find these to buy in Australia they will cost around $1200. 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 wheels) meaning they don't look quite so shiny and new (which also means a much cheaper price to you!). The hubs alone would set you back around $800!

Can supply with tubs for a few $ more - they currently have Schawlbe Milanos on them, but equally I'll gladly pull those off and sell without for the advertised price. Will supply with a double wheel bag, but no cassette or skewers.

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 budge side-to-side even with the hardest of efforts!

The front brake track looks worse than it is because there's some dried on brake dust on there and I didn't have a clean cloth to hand!

Forgot to mention, the rear tubbie (should you want the tyres left on) is brand new. I'll also supply a set of nearly-new SRAM/Swissstop black pads.

I'll drop to $600, but otherwise it's a no - splitting leaves me with 2 worthless rims and and a batch of useless spokes and nipples!

From memory, about 1760g. But they're not meant to be light.

Wouldn't be cheap because they're not light! Not taking the tubs or double wheel bag would offset that a bit, but it wouldn't make much difference to the price.

Without doing any investigation, I'd guess at $40. I'd need to weight them with a wheel box and measure up to get an accurate estimate though.

Still available - I'll take $550, or $525 without tubs.

Shipping extra (I'd guess at around $40+), collection / meet up to hand over preferred. No more offers - this is plenty cheap enough!

Rich, like petal I am very very tempted. I am in Brisbane too.

The price is right, but do you have a better idea about shipping cost?

Tambo - ping me your postcode and I'll get an estimate.

EDIT: To a Brisbane postcode it's going to be $50-$70 depending on the box size I can get hold of.
