Hello all, this is my first post at bikeradar. I just came over this add at ebay:

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Zipp-202-Climbing-Wheelset-2006-Model-Tubular-700c_W0QQitemZ270470966778QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK_sportsleisure_cycling_bikeparts_SR?hash=item3ef9536dfa

Are these genuine? If they are, is it a good offer?

Thanks!!

    3yrs old.... Cracks! :shock:
    They're a nice wheelset, new, but I'd be very wary of buying cracked rims.
    They'll probably need a service straight away, which is more money...
    I wouldn't :roll:
    Start with a budget, finish with a mortgage!
  • That's what I thought... Thanks.

    there is no way i'd buy them for that sort of money - maybe half that but even then...

    ribble have campag eurus for £399 at the moment - that would get my money in the <£400 at the moment (and did so last year!)

    After you've paid £600+ for new rims, that's over a grand for a pair of used wheels! This gut is taking the proverbial - Zipps have a poor reputation for durability and this kinda just proves the point - you could buy a pair of new wheels from www.wheelsmith.co.uk with shallow carbon rims, Novatech hubs and CX-Ray spokes for £500
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    Avoid like William Hague.

    Sorry...

    Avoid like the plague.
