I'm looking for a pair of 50-58 mm tubulars for racing this season, and I'd like to keep the budget below $800 to get the most value out of my tax return (I should get on that...). Obviously, the Zipps, Eastons, HEDs, etc are out of my range. So I'm pretty much left to choose between used wheels and Chinese/Taiwanese/Philippines? manufacturers.
I could get a pair of williams 58 for $450 plus shipping (from a facebook group), but they have 1000+ miles of racing miles.
The other option is to look for knockoffs. I found Yoeleo and HongFu. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience dealing with these retailers, or know of any other good retailers.
Also, how do the knockoff wheels compare to the well known brands?
