I know you have an old set of wheels sitting around from when you bought those spiffy new deep rims. Well, good news. I'll buy them off of you. No tires? No problem. No tubes? No problem. Just need to be your typical run of the mill 700C road wheel, close to true, and beat the price I was quoted from Contes. I'll even settle for just buying a front wheel.
Just reply here or e-mail me at my username (rdejonck) at gmail.com.
Also check out bikewheelwarehouse.com - they seem to be one of the cheapest wheelbuilders around, from basic to nice, and I've read lots of good things about them on several forums. Not bought from them yet, though.
What happened to the front? Did it make friends with a pothole?
