    Very nice - put it up against a light background, with a close up shot to do it justice.

    From memory, around £850, I think...

    So the wheels cost you £850 (seems high, btw), but they only represent £100 of the sale value of the bike according to the ad???

    Yep, £850 give or take £10 here or there.

    No, as stated I will be removing the wheels pictured, and putting brand new Bontrager Race wheels on. Or if the buyer prefers, sell without wheels.

    Looks great!
    How are you finding the wheels?
    I'm interested in some Wheelsmith 50mm carbon clinchers with their own hubs and Sapim CXRays.
    Cheers, Stu

    This is actually my first pair of deep section carbon wheels, I've only ever had high end aluminium wheels so my thoughts are purely from this wheelset and no comparisons...

    They're pretty responsive, some slight lateral flex under heavy pressure (I'm only 74kg), good weight, pretty bad in heavy crosswinds as you'd expect for a cheap ish carbon clinchers. All in all a decent wheelset. If I had the chance to buy again I'd go for a shallower rim.

    Hope this helps.

    Are they the 20mm wide or 24mm wide rims?
    By shallower do you mean the 38mm option?

    They're 20/21mm wide. Yeah shallower i.e. 38mm.
  • Boardman are so underrated

    I agree. This is my second and they're great bikes.
  • Still for sale guys!
