Wheels questions - quality and value with pictures

I have some spare wheels.
- a MAVIC GL 330, rear wheel with Campanolo Record hub, no cassette (probably 27" x 1)
- another Mavic GL 330, rear wheel with Campanolo (looks newer model) and a Suntour cassette
on the hub says Campanolo Italy brev and British 1370 x 24 Tpi BSC (probably 27" x 1)
- a set of AVA wheels with Suntour hubs (probably 27" x 1)
- a rear XeroLite XSR 3 wheel (700)
- a Shimano WH-TD 77 front wheel (700)
Any info about the quality and range of price, please.
Thanks in advance, Marius

If you want help, you need to link to some photos. Condition is critical.

Your likely better selling the hubs separately, there isn't much call for used tubular wheels no matter how nice or little use they have seen.

Post some pictures. I would be interested in the tubular wheels. All my rear tubular wheels have flat spots. Could really use some round wheels.

Do you have the skewer for the C-Record hub?

+1

You may be able to find ebay sold comps for the original wheels and hubs as well. For the more modern aero wheels, I recently paid about $50 for a pair of Vueltas with tires and tubes, also $45 for a pair of Bontragers I won on ebay, local pickup. I think the Shimano hub is a tandem front wheel.

I was interested if they are wheels which you'll use on a better quality bike or doesn't matter.
I don't want to waist them on a 80...100$ bike

In general they're wheels which would be used on a better quality bike. Are you looking to buy or sell?

Buyer: The only set of interest would be the Xero's as they're a complete set with clincher rims. I wouldn't pay more than $100 for them. All the others I wouldn't bother with.

Seller: Tubulars are death sentence....old work out tubular are worse than that. The Campy hubs have nomimal value if they're cut from the rims. Maybe $45-50 ea. if the axles and cones are good. Xero's have some resale value. AVA's with Suntour hubs have nominal value.

I have them, got them for nothing. Not very interested to sell, but interested to use them properly.

That would be a mistake. I wouldn't pay more than $5 for a xero. they came on low to mid level bikes and they crack like crazy, worst design ever. I would give this wheel away or use it till it breaks. The shimano wheel is okay but a bad paired design and once it takes a hit it is very hard to true. I'd say $25 for it, hub is good quality so it is a shame the rim sucks, that said, because of the proprietary design the hub is worthless on its own. You might as well use the Xero front and shimano rear as a set as they sort of look similar. The big plus is you don't have the xero rear (probably because it cracked), the front should enjoy a longer life since it is not subject to the drive forces.

The c-rec rear hub... maybe $40-50 if in good shape, cleaned up and with good photos. The record hub probably $30 or so cleaned with good photos.

Reasonable, with some qualifications.
The AVA wheels , while tubular MAY have some value to a local buyer. The wheels are "training day" wheels, tubular and 700c.
The Corsa Record, (C-Record) hub will have some value too, most probably without the rim, be sure to remove the freewheel first! if you cut the wheel apart.
The Campagnolo Record, (often known as Nuovo Record, and it bugs me every time I read it "Super Record" which it is not… also has some value.
I would offer them as hubs for sale, and let the buyer decide if they want to gamble on the shipping or want a whole wheel.
Do Remove the freewheel first on that one! It too has some value. $30.
All the tubular wheels are 700c.
The Shimano rear wheel is as stated not Shimano's finest hour. Functional, but not terrific, I too would sell the "almost pair" as a set, $45.
