700c Mavic A319/Deore wheelset. 36 spoke. The best for touring!

Cross-posting this here from touring subforum. I figure there must be some touring bike people who want to go to 700c and make a practical C&V tourer, by upgrading to 700c for increased tire options and tire clearance, and upgrading to a freehub to stop breaking axles!

For sale is a wheelset made with Mavic A319 rims and Deore hubs. 100 front spacing, 135 rear spacing. Rear freehub for 8/9/10sp. High quality stainless spokes. Very nice and clean wheelset! I have toured on a lot of wheels, and broken a lot of rims and hubs, and the A319 and Deore are the only ones I have not broken! What's their secret? Forged hubshells make the hubs resistant to cracking, and and double eyelets distribute the load from the spokes to both walls of the double-walled rim! I don't go touring without them.

These spin true and have fairly little wear. The bearings were just overhauled. These wheels will convert any old steel bike into a reliable world-class tourer! I mount tires as big as 48mm wide on them, with no trouble.

Here are some photos.









How's $200 plus shipping sound? That's half of what anybody's charging, that I can find. Shipping will be Shipbikes/Fedex and shouldn't be more than $30. If you think the asking price is unreasonable, please make a reasonable offer.

Will take Venmo (preferred), bitcoin, money order, google cash app, cash in an envelope, or (if you must), paypal F&F.

Awesome wheelset. A319's are indeed bombproof.
Just built up a new set of them for my touring bike and expect that they will outlive me!
