I just found someone selling never used white, machined, Deep V's for $200. The guy sounds pretty desperate, so I'm thinking maybe I can talk him down to $150. Comes w/ formula hubs (flip/flop in the back) and black spokes.
I was originally intending on getting the same setup except w/ Mavic Open Pros, but they're ~$100 more new with tax/shipping factored in. I know Deep V's are overdone and heavier, but they only weigh 85g more than OPs (V's-520g, OP's-435g). Make much of a difference?
Think I should pick these up if I can talk him down fifty bucks? I ride a 2006 Bianchi San Jose SS.
