    I just got a set of Mavic Ksyrium Equipe S wheels for about $550. They're far from $1,000, but they're pretty decent. I'm happy with them.

    I didn't get too bad of a deal on them. I paid $530, which I think is about $20 cheaper than most other places. While it's by no far a steal of a price, $20 is $20. :D
