  • Specialized Axis Elite 2021 Gravel disc aluminium wheelset.
    Been keeping them in a box for way too long so time to go.
    They have been used a handful of time as I upgraded to a pair of Hunt wheels shortly after purchase.
    They came on a Specialized Diverge E5 Elite bike. Specialized claim they are tubeless ready but I only used them with inner tubes, so they are clean of tubeless sealant and in excellent condition.

    They come with Shimano RT66 6-Bolt Disc Brake Rotors.
    Thru-axle hubs.
    10-speed Shimano compatible.

    I can include slick 32mm tyres too for an additional £20.

    Local pick up from NW1 Camden Square area near KX.
    Looking for £275. Price negotiable..
    Thank you!

  • I think 275 is very optimistic. They’re the stock set on the £1200 Diverge, and at that price point the wheels tend to be basic at best. Sorry to piss on your chips, but I’d suggest knocking at least 100 off the asking and and going from there

  • The price that you say is what I’ve seen for well used wheels and without the rotors. These have been used a handful of times so they’re are practically new, hence the price.
    Also, to correct you, these are from the £1800 E5 Elite Diverge, they are not the Axis Sport which are the lower range.
    As I said, price is negotiable. Are you interested?

  • This particular wheelset from your £1800 bike, but they're also available on the £1200 Claris model

    The buyer wouldn't get any sort of warranty on these as they weren't the original purchaser.

    Specialized don't spec a wheelset that's worth anywhere near £240 (+£35 for the rotors) on a bike with 8 speed Claris, and overly optimistic pricing tends to struggle here vs, say, eBay.

    Anyway, GLWS...

  • You haven’t answered my question: Are you interested? If not, let others decide for themselves. I’m not here to argue. Have a good day.

  • I think he was trying to be helpful rather than critical.

    No one is buying these for £275 when you can get a brand new with warranty DT Swiss G1800 wheelset for another £4. Included rotors or not.


  • Closing this as the whole is only spamming and nothing else. Thanks for being not helpful at all and wasting my time.
