    Good deal on wheelset on Ebay

    If you need a really nice set of wheels, check this out. Its a killer deal if you can get them for under $200.

    DT Swiss 4.2 Specialized wheels 26" wheelset disc | eBay

    I have a set just like these and have beat the snot out of them over the past 18mo. They work great as tubeless. The extra stiff RWS skewers are great. The skewers are worth at least $75 a set by themselves. I've replaced most of the rear wheel spokes with thicker DT spokes over the past year because the original DT spokes are pretty thin and tend to break at the threads with heavy use. I'm sure my 200# weight helps, too.

    Here's a pic of mine on a scale, minus tires & skewers


    Not SPAM. This is not my auction. Just thought I'd pass it on.

    Its an ok deal. Those rims are butter like and the low spoke count on the front one doesn't help.

    I sold a set exactly like that almost 2 years ago for less than $200. Those wheels are on there quite often.
