    Cheap tubular wheels

    Hi everyone,

    I looking for some cheap tubular wheels. Must be under $400, but I would like closer to $2-300. They need to be new. I'm having a hard time finding them for that price. They don't have to be great or even light. I'm just trying to try out tubulars for myself and see if I want to go that route. Thanks!

    Adam

    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Velocity Escapes laced to whatever hubs. The bomb.

    some formula hubs and spokes and nipples
    and a local wheelbuilder
    should work out to just over $300.

    these are the only non-aero tubular track wheels anyone should be buying new.

    Tubulars are a ***** to deal with though.
