    Does anyone have these? How are they holding up? Anyone know why they are going for so cheap now?

    Lol I just got my set today in the mail....

    They're going for cheap because they are last years models and because reynolds discontinued them. They also seem to be getting rid of old stock as they've changed their wheel decals.

    Their logos are like this now:



    I have connections.

    $800; details in my thread @ the track section.

    Good luck getting them for sub $600 on ebay... A LOT of people are jumping on those. I was keeping an eye on them too when I was waiting my set to be delivered by fedex.

    I got my set for $659 (shipped) about 2 months ago. Email one of the sellers that has best offer and just submit an offer. That's how I got mine!
    After all of the things I have done, I hate myself for what i have become.

    i got my pair for 606.06 (plus shipping)

    currently on my pista concept!


    i will say i have seen them go for as low as 560.....but that is rare. in a bidding war, it seems average price is 600-700 roughly. i basically told myself my highest price was 620, and just threw in that bid at the last second on about 7 auctions before i scored mine.

    Nice; you guys will chide me but I rode mine on the street for 20 miles yesterday... I just couldn't resist; or were they because they were cheaper than my s80's so that I was comfortable enough to use them....

    yah although i bought these for my pista concept "for use at the velodrome" build, ill definitely be riding them on the road every once in a while.

    I mean, they are the exact same rims as the road version, just a track hub instead of cassette. so i wouldn't think there would be anything wrong with using them on the road.


    i have only ridden them for a total of 5 minutes up and down the block.
    they made a few creaking noises but after doing that a little for a few minutes it seemed to stop. i guess that is normal "fresh out the box" noises? spokes settling in and what not? should i put a touch of lubrication on each nipple or something?

    My thoughts exactly. As for the break in noises; I didn't experience any but the LBS my friend got them from would've likely tuned them up before they sold them to him considering they were deadstock

    To my understanding, these wheels will have a break in period and will have to be trued. Once you have them trued they should be pretty much bomb proof for a very long time.

    They are slightly different from the road version. I think there was something to the degree of having the carbon weaved a little different to put more vertical stiffness into the track wheels.

    So here are some stats for weight:
    Road Tubular - 1390g
    Road Clincher - 1675g
    Track Tubular - 1660g
    Track Clincher - 1945g

    So you can see that they are definitely different. A difference of 1.2 pounds from the lightest road vs heaviest track version of the sdv66's

    well, here they are on my build (and my thumb), just finished it today. probably tweak some things here and there....but all in all, im super happy with them



    took it around the block again, little wheel noises are gone. pretty sure they were just preliminary spokes settling noises. wheels were super true out of the box...hubs are super smooth. as soon as i can get some friends interested for a weekend outing, ill be trying them on the track.

    Looking good! Can't wait to get mine in the mail this week. What kind of tires do you have on there and how long are your stem valves for the tube? I forgot that I may need to buy new ones since the depth of the rim is so big.
