    Well, turns out the front wheel has got a teensy little problem--the owner was in an accident and the front wheel has some abrasions that I can sparingly file/emery board off. So far so good.

    Thanks, Andy--I just flip'em for a charity thing. So if somebody DOES want a deal, what's an appropriate amount to knock off?

    Scratch on rim of new wheel

    Right out of the box--brand new Shimano RS010 wheelset from chainreactioncycles. This is really surprising because the shipping box looked as though it had not been opened since it left the factory...

    Well, this certainly caught my attention. Nevertheless, the DS tension is average 110 and NDS is average 14 on the TM-1, which is somewhere below 50.

    There are actually 2 versions of the 6800...

    New Mavic Open Pro rims laced to new Ultegra 6800 hubs with 2-1.8-2 spokes.
