So what was that all about then, £1750 for a used front carbon wheel and 32 bids?

Nothing special really, 88mm deep section, unbranded, tubular fitted, Ultegra skewer and Pro wheel bag. Should have gone for about £250 - £300 max, or am I missing the point?

Is it just more eBay madness?

    It's actually a Zipp 808 - you can tell by the 'sections' on the wheel plus the hub (if you look closely).

    Nevertheless, one can only assume it was some sort of bidding error to get it that high. Worth no more than £500.
