taking a brief stroll thru ebay the other day I spied a whole load of stuff from Fetsh Cycles for sale by user bikekingusa. I find it weird that there is not ONE bid for any of the auctions. I watched a couple of items and they ended with no bids and they were relisted a day later. Carbon tubular wheels for $500 and not a nibble?!?!?
2004 Raleigh Talus, 2001 Motobecane Vent Noir (Custom build for heavy riders)
I think part is they are tubulars....clinchers sell better (although I did see some clinchers as well).
The other side of the coin is the high starting price...I bet if they started at $100, he would be up to 600+ right now....that's how ebay tends to go....priced too low or too high initially, and you get little if any bids.
Plus I'm not sure how many people know who fetish cycles is, and go for the common name stuff like easton or reynolds.
And they are zipp brand. People covet the brand name stuff, and they are proven road worthy.
Nope its 38mm, which according to Zipp is the minimum rim profile for it to be aerodynamically effective. I understand the name brand appeal since this sport is probably the snobbiest one I've ever gotten into but hey you can pick up a set of those fetish wheels and put zipp stickers all over it.
