View Full Version : DT Swiss wheelset

08-22-2007, 09:12 AM

I am considering the sale of a wheelset and I wanted to see if anyone is interested. Everything is in great shape as the wheelset has been lovingly used only in good weather and on good roads. The wheels are true/round and have basically required zero maintenance other than an occasional wipe-down. They are two years old and have been ridden only during the spring/summer months.


28 spoke front and rear
DT Swiss 240s rear hub - Shimano
American Classic Micro front hub
DT Swiss RR1.1 rims
Wheelsmith XL14 spokes (light, aero spokes, nice stuff)
radial laced front
3x rear (have to double check this)
brass nipples (with RnR Nipple Cream used during the build)
rim tape (Velox, I think)
OddsandEndos steel skewers

Based on the spec of the parts used, the wheelset weighs in the ballpark of 1450 grams excluding skewers.

The parts cost in the neighborhood of $600 and that seems to be around the going rate for a new wheelset with similar specs (Excel Threat). Make me an offer.

I'll post some pictures later today.
