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)

Campagnolo Atlanta 96

I could be buying a set of these rims laced to campy record low-flange hubs.

The rims are brand new but the hubs are a little used.

Didn't find anything about those in the past threads, I know they're not the best campy wheelset but they look pretty solid. I'll probably buy them since everything I found on those is positive but I just tought maybe someone here as personnal experience or toughts about them. To make me wonder or to make me go for it.

Here's a bike with the wheels, those are NOT the one I am going to buy, those are laced to phils...

i <3 that cdale.

atlanta rims are rugged, heavy, and likely a lot more aero-worthy than deep v's. only problem is hordes of campy-only fanatics willing to pay more now for a set of lightly used wheels than what they costed when they came out.

Same thing I would for brand new non-machined velocity deep V's laced to formulas.

I bought a Lambda Strada, sort of a shallower version of the Atlanta. Seems to be about the same weight as my CXP22. I would think think the Atlanta would be similar to a Deep-V in weight.

Polished aluminum is such an awesome aesthetic.

You mean the complete wheelset for 300 ?

Because 150 each rims seams very expensive.

They're NOS. I would expect at least $100 per rim.

I mean 150 each for just rims
they're rare, good quality, but in my opinion the market overvalues them
I've seen them for as much as $190 per rim

It already has drops on it. That's the problem.

That's not expensive considering how much the rims are. And the hubs. Not used even.
