    Will these wheelsets fit my 1986 Inronman Dave Scott edition Centurion?

    I have a 1986 Inronman Dave Scott edition Centurion that needs some love (cracked rear hub, missing teeth on the rear, 6-speed cassette, etc). Any reason why these wouldn't work for me?

    http://denver.craigslist.org/bik/3229225563.html

    And what would be a reasonable price for these?

    Thanks

    Yes... but since you didn't already know that, I'm guessing you don't want tubulars.

    If I was in your shoes, I'd get them, but not everyone will agree with me, because they're tubular.

    I'd offer $100 on the wheelset because they're tubular and the market is teeeny-tiny for those.
    Then spend $25 on Tufo tape. Then get the best tubulars you can afford. I like Tufo's, but not everyone does.

    You may end up with close to $200 involved. Balance that cost against the clincher wheelsets available.
    They're out there, and clinchers may make better sense in the long run.

    I'm running some on a modern Kestrel with modern 10-sp wheels, just fine.
    They will look like clinchers, roll very nicely, and be a little bit hard, but nowhere near as hard as the Ironman's original 700x19 Technova's.

    ^I've been wanting to try tubulars, so if it was me I would buy them too. It even has a freewheel that will plug right in to your index system.

    Well said. I'm going to pass on the tubulars (now that I know what they are). I appreciate all the quick responses.
