Info on Mercury Wheels?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Info on Mercury Wheels?

Hello,
I have a chance to pick up a used Mercury carbon wheelset but I want to know if they are a good choice. I'm not sure if its the M or S series but I know it's a 39mm clincher. Here's the website: http://www.mercurybikes.com/Default.asp?cat=1047
If you know around what price I should be paying please share that as well. Thanks.

I don't know about those wheels. You may want to take a close look around the spoke holes on the rims (especially on the rear drive side) to verify that there are no cracks before purchasing them.

I haven't used their wheels, but i have one of their bikes and i like it. The customer service is great, too.

I know they've been doing a lot with the kendra pro team and have been getting a lot of feedback on the wheels.
