Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

I wouldn't. Flipping used wheels is tricky and there's a pretty slim market for tubular tires as it is.

Buy them things and enjoy! Unless you don't have a campy-equipped road bike. Then don't bother.

Not really. I've got enough track wheels plus I'm too heavy for Shamals or anything else with less than 20 spokes.

The value changes if they have track hubs or require a front QR skewer as they were also used for Triathlons and Time Trials.

I would suggest it is highly ill-advised to relace any boutique wheels--- especially those with exceedingly low spoke counts.

Sure, it is a nice price for Shamals--- but again, if they are road wheels with a Campy body, and tubulars, your market is suddenly very slim for flipping.
