    What are these worth? Paul SS Wheelset

    Looking to see what these wheels are worth. I bought a 1x1 and ended up parting out b/c I could make money on it and the size was a bit too small. From what I can find the hubs are pretty good and the rims are mediocre. The wheels were professionally built and never trail ridden and are completely true and round with smooth bearings smooth.

    - Paul Hubs
    F: Disk FHUB
    R: Disk WORD
    - Sun Rhyno Lite rims (559 x 27mm)
    - DT Swiss Spokes

    Thoughs on price/ worth?

    Anyone want them?

    Authorities speculate that speed may have been a factor. They are also holding gravity and inertia for questioning.

    Those are nice hubs, but because wheels are so expensive to ship, I wouldn't expect more than $100-$125 for the pair.

    Without photos and complete details on their build and condition -- worth unknown.

    32 straight gauge spokes, QR front hub (the Paul bolt-on front axle commands a premium), and they appear to be in great condition. I'd ask at least the retail value of the front and rear hubs -- somewhere around $250.

    thanks!

    These were literally pulled off a new bike that a guy with too much money built up.

    Thinking that i may try to relace into 29er wheels as i am in the market for a SS 29er.

    Appreciate the comments

    paul's rear hub on a kris holm 29er rim over here... the extra wide flanges build a REALLY nice stiff rear wheel. molto bueno for ss use
    I'd bene sorely unimpressed with previous 29er wheels and was chalking it up tot eh size until I got the paul's wheel sorted (and yes, of course the rim played a big part in the difference in feel!)
    If steel is real then aluminium is supercallafragiliniun!

    I have the same hubs laced to DT Swiss 4.2 rims, DT spokes - very light and nice. I don't like or ride Sun rims so I couldn't comment on those. The hubs are just as good as anything out there. I use a WI ENO freewheel.

    I had a set of these laced up with Salsa Delgados... Nice wheels, ended up selling them for around 200.00

    Definitely a fine idea to pull the hubs and lace into 29er rims. I'm moving from White Ind hubs to Paul on my Jabberwocky. Bearings on the White rear hub not up to snuff for such a visually "pretty" item. (2 bearings replaced in less than a year.)
    Love the White freewheels and no issue with the front hub. Running Stan's 355 rims laced 3X.
