Carbon Tubular Wheels and Tyres for Sale - 700c x 33

Planet X C38 Tubular Wheels fitted with Challenge Baby Limus Cyclocross tyres.

Wheels:
These are in very good overall condition but have been used so bear signs of wear but no damage / cracks etc etc. Person who fitted the tyres was not the neatest and glue overspill can be seen on the rims in some photos. Its not bad - just if you are picky (like me) or wonder what you are seeing in the photos. This will clean up with Acetone next time you change the tyres. They are set up with the attachment points for 6 bolt brake rotors but can be run with Rim Brakes also.

They are suitable for standard Quick Release skewers.

The rear wheel is fitted with a 10/11 speed hub that will accept SRAM, Shimano or Sunrace cassette.

Bearings run smooth and wheels are true. Details from Planet X Ireland web site:

The tyres are Challenge Baby Limus - Tubulars. Never punctured/repaired and have had very little use. These are designed for mud or gravel and I have used them on loose fire road gravel surfaces to very good effect.

They are 33c so ideal for fast on road as well as getting onto tow paths, gravel tracks and rough or muddy surfaces.

Wiggle have the tyres listed at £49 each - They say this:

"The Open Tubular Baby Limus 33 cyclo-cross tyre is ideal for sticky mud conditions and features a mix depth of knobs for traction and grip. The tyre also provides great speed, tough Super Poly casing and a good level of puncture protection."

So in total this set up would cost you around £700 new. I need to clear some space in my shed and pay for some of the bike parts I have been splashing out on during lockdown so I am only looking for £275. I am happy to post/courier at buyers expense and they will be well packed in a proper wheel box.

If you have any questions or would like more information please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Thanks for looking

    Wow, apologies. I thought my post was pretty reasonable re description, photos etc. I have been a user of the site for a long time but just not posted anything before. How do I rectify the problem?
    Thanks for highlighting it and apologies again, no offence intended

    Correct Darius, I did register then. However I have been reading reviews and educating myself re cycling and bikes for several years. I wasn't actually aware that registration was required or available. Again, apologies that I have never before posted anything, I am not a big user of social media.
    If as moderator of the forum you would prefer to remove my post then I will understand..

    Regards
