Having just missed out on a pair of lightly used Ksyrium Elites for €300, I'm having to start afresh in my search for a new set of wheels (clinchers). Ideally new, but excellent quality second hand would be OK too. Will be used for club spins, sportives, etc only, no racing. Budget, ideally no more than €400 (closer to €300 would be ideal!). I know that at €500+ a a lot more choice opens up for me............but funds are tight!!!
So, I'm considering the following:
Pro-Lite Bracciano - €360 @ CRC
Shimano RS80 C24 - €380 @ Planet-X plus postage
Fulcrum 3's - €330@ Bike-Palast plus postage
Mavic Ksyrium Elites (various places @ c€400 plus postage so really these are above budget)
The bling tart in me wants deep set carbon wheels....so, these are in the mix:
Chinese carbon jobbies - such as these maybe (though above budget) or similar from
Hong-fu 38mm carbon - c€370 from China
I've been directed towards Shimano CL 7850s, but these seem to be discontinued and unavailable. In any case, they are well above budget ............ but used, perhaps worth trying to track down?
Any other suggestions I should/can consider?
