    I'm interested in this wheelset, and according to the owner, they have less than 40 hours on them. What do you guys think?? The rear cassette and rotor look a little rusty, which raises some questions.

    King hubs are worth their weight in gold. Rotors can be dirt cheap and cassettes are easy to change.

    there's no cr*p in the spokes at the flange - either the guy loves q-tips or he's legit. Either way they're good wheels.

    Nice wheels. I'd buy them. It could be rust or dust but you'd think he'd clean them before selling? Even if it is rust, as Raiyn said rotors and cassettes are cheap to replace. It's about the hub!

    metal will rust just sitting around. There doesn't seem to be dust in the nooks and crannies of the wheel. Buy them, ride them, and don't worry about it.
