Not sure where to post this: Wheel Appraisal

What would you pay for a brand new wheelset from a 2012 Bianchi Volpe? I suppose it is called "Bianchi DRX2000 32-spoke".

Thanks!

Some guy wants $150. Seems reasonable, but with the lack of branding I really have no idea.

If you don't buy that wheelset, what are your alternatives?

I use Ultegra/Open Pro as a comparison. I'm guessing they're run around $250.00 today. Judging from that I'd say $150.00 sounds like a pretty good deal.

Thank you! I'm not quite sure about the alternatives yet...

If anyone has any, I'd be happy to listen.
