SOLD!

Built last year by hand, by our own OldPotatoe (aka, Peter Chisholm), this wheelset is on sale now as a clear demonstration of my bike parts overbuying.

I ordered the wheelset for a project that hasn't, just hasn't. So it's totally new, never mounted, never used. Will work with Shimano or SRAM, 11-speed down to 8-speed.

Here are the specs:
* Ultegra 6800 hubs (11-speed), 32-hole, grey
* Velocity A23 rims, 700c, silver
* For both tubed & tubeless tires
* Rear OC (off-center)
* Sapim spokes, double-butted
* 3-cross lacing
* With skewers
* With spacer for 10/9/8 speed cassettes

Price new was $479.
Price now, still new, is $325, plus shipping (in bike wheel boxes).

Some pix here, and questions quickly answered.

Dave, who still has other projects going and other sales of extra stuff too

Consider how much new handbuilt wheels, handbuilt by an expert, would normally cost...

I bet that the person who will eventually buy these wheels either has not seen them yet for sale, or will be the person who says that with this price drop that they're now a super-excellent deal.

I bet...

...Old Potatoe's wheels.

I ordered a set of 24" wheels for my kid's bike, and he did an amazing job. Once the build gets closer, I'll post pics.

If Peter built 'em, they're great. Two thumbs up for OP wheels.
