how are the Alex Vectra Disc wheelsets? they are all over ebay, and for a good price. the description claims:
"Front Weight: 755 grams ? Rear Weight: 1030 grams"
sounds like a good wheelset to me.. is this a good deal?
heres the link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=3664886003&category=58089

Nothing to get hot and bothered over. I'd much rather have a Mavic rim laced to an LX or XT hub for about the same money. I'm not a big fan/advocate of low spoke count wheels. Then again, I'm a big fat arse and low spoke count wheels don't last.
I think you could find some better deals on wheels at www.jensonusa.com or www.supergo.com or www.pricepoint.com or www.wheelworld.com or....etc.

Keep looking around, there are some pretty good deals going on right now. The Alex set isn't bad, but isn't good when compared to that set for $10 more!
