    Some nice bits on there, thanks.

    Arkane have given me a tempting quote with their slickest hubs, but I can also get the Mavic Ksyriums at the same price, so currently in deliberation with myself.

    To be fair, the Mavics are available for not much more. Suppose Mavic is reasonably safe, and also good re warranty and such?

    Appreciate the link and review, might just stay clear of the Zed.

    Looking at these as far as retail go, anyone familiar with the brand? Says rim width 27mm, but optimised for 25mm tires, how does that work?

    Sweet! Maybe you could DM me a couple of potential build options?

    These Mavic Ksyriums would be the lick, fits the bill perfectly, except the rather wild price for a rim brake wheelset these days?


    Would pay up towards £1k for something new, half that for something in used condition.

    Looking for a carbon wheelset for my SuperSix. Ideally:

    • Reasonably low profile/lightweight (under 30mm deep)
    • Rim brake
    • Not too wide, optimised for 25mm tires
    • Preferably in near new/vgc

    If anyone has anything knocking about, sees anything, or know of any good value ones at retail, let me know!

    I'm also keen on a closer look at these pending condition.

    Looking for reasonably low profile rim brake carbon hoops, ideally new, but there's not a whole lot out there anymore.

    Selling my steel Specialized Langster, because it just doesn't get used. Super sweet bike, with lots of cool and lots of chrome. It is very lightly used, with minimal signs of wear and no scratches or chips to note. Some bits and finishing kit are brand new, and not used at all.

    Frameset, Sugino crankset and shiny seatpost and shiny Alexrims wheelset all original and in good condition.

    Bought brand new:
    Unbranded (Campagnolo?) brake callipers from Condor
    Zipp 90mm stem (fitted with quill adapter)
    Believe the bars are Zipp too, can't remember (380mm fo sho)
    Blingy TRP brake levers, drilled and shiny
    Fizik bar tape

    Bike has a knock off Amazon Power saddle fitted, and I can chuck in some flat pedals if wanted.

    Spent way too much on the shiny bits, so asking for the £450 I originally paid before I started to throw money at this. Collection only, in Hackney E9.
