A forum member is hooking me up with a nice set of 6800s > DT R460s. Thanks for all of the offers, everyone!

Looking for a wheelset with the following specs:
-11s Shimano/SRAM freehub
-23mm external rim width (H Plus Son TB14, Archetype, HED Belgium, Velocity A23, etc.)
-28/28 or 32/32 silver butted spokes (e.g. Sapim Race) - no straight gauge or black spokes, please.
-brass nipples preferred
-grey/black/silver hubs and rims okay - but no colors
-clinchers or tubeless - no tubulars

The ideal combination that I can get a new is Shimano Ultegra 6800 hubs > Sapim Race > hard ano TB14s for about $400 shipped, so would need to be less than that if used, or have nicer hubs (love me some White Industries T11s).

Looking to standardize wheel specs to make my wheels as interchangeable as possible, so the 23mm width and 11s freehub are crucial.

They have a few options that match your specs... I just bought a set of the R32 Disc wheels, already have a set of the R24 disc which have been nice so far.

Looks like you are looking for clincher set? I've got tubulars Rev Wheelworks REV20X that fit your requirements otherwise.

Their wheels seem nice. I forgot to include in the OP that I'm looking for something high spoke count. 28/28 or 32/32.

Yeah, clinchers. I'll update the OP.

Funny... I've got almost the exact setup you're looking for: 6800 TB-14s, Sapim spokes, but... AL nipples everywhere but the drive side rear. Those are black brass.


Front's a black classic looking 28h 'something' hub tho. Nice enough hub

I've ridden them a hnadful of times so there's a little brake marking on the front rim

I don't need to sell them, but if the price is right...

You're doing yourself an injustice if you don't buy the DA 9000 C24's for sale here for $575. Check most of your boxes and so many more.

Great wheels, but are they wide rims?

I have a set of last year's DT Swiss Axis 2.0 wheels. 11 speed, 23mm wide rim, clincher. Used maybe 3x at the most. Includes Panaracer Ribmo tires. I'd let them go for $225 shipped

How about some NOS Mavic Classics Pro CDs? I have them set up Campy, Shimano swap is easy, never ridden.

mine are not for sale, but you can build what you're looking for reasonably cheaply. i'd avoid the cheaper velomine offerings, the straight gauge spokes, combined with a heavy hub like the 6800 or 5800 make a super heavy wheelset, very dead feeling.

i built a "classics" set a couple years ago and they've done it all and keep coming back for more. d2r2, dirtphalt, hell of hunterdon, miles and miles of bad NJ roads, etc.

tb14 rims, bitex hubs, wheelsmith double butted spokes and brass locking nips. once i built them, never had to touch them again with a spoke key.

Yeah, I have a set of Bitex (well, BikeHubStore) hubs > CX-Rays > brass nipples > Archetypes that have been great. Probably best to go a similar direction this time.

There are a couple of VeloMine offerings with butted spokes, and nicely priced around $300, but they are all black spokes. I want to go silver spokes on this build.
