Mavic 819's and Hope Pro II hubs

Looking for a new wheelset and have the opportunity to purchase a set of 2008 Mavic 819's w/ Hope Pro II hubs for $280. What do you think - good deal and should I pull the trigger. Those running that setup, let me hear your thoughts.

Thanks!

Is this used? Or new?

The ProII hubs are nice at their price-point. The older Bulbs were more prone to problems, the ProII line seems to have improved the durability. That said, they require more frequent upkeep than some others. Not so bad now, as they are fairly easy to get parts for if needed.

If they are in good shape or new, and you don't mind taking care of them, go for it.

I had an older Bulb that destroyed itself despite regular maintenance, and now have a ProII that (so far) has been problem free.
