Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Formula High Flange Hubs, flip/flop fixed/fixed threading
10 x 1 mm rear axle
9 x 1 mm front axle
32 hole hubs, DT spokes, 700c Alex R390 Aero Rims

Brand New.

How much are these wheels worth? How are they compared to the Nashbar's CXP22 Track wheelset (similar I'm supposing?)?

Please reply if you've got an opinion. I have several hours to decide on these. And I posted them in the Craigslist/ebay thread up top but have not received any responses in a day...

Thanks in advance!

i paid just under $100 for my rear, but i get a 10% mess. hookup anywhere. that said. probably about $200 for the pair. I've never used nor heard anything about the nashbars, but i'd say they're comparable.

less than 180. I had 32h formulas on CXP22's. Alex rims are sorta known for not being of as high quality. Sorry man.

I'd say as far as hubs, they are pretty equal. However the mavic rims blow alex rims out of the water. Alex rims suck balls.

Thanks guys. Anyway, I was watching the auction in its final minutes and then at 1 minute, some jackass bid up to like $80, then it ended at $105 (+ 42 shipping). I was hoping to get these for <$120, but hey, now I'll just wait for the CXP22 to come back at Nashbar and look for some discount codes...lol
