    Campy Atlanta 96 rims

    does anybody have an opinion on campy Atlanta 96 rims . I can get a wheelset with the rims mated to a campy chorus front hub, and a veloce rear. I will be using these with 11 speed. the veloce rear currently is being used as a 10 speed , so it should work fine. I'm just unsure about the rims, & the veloce hub??
    The wheels are a 32 spoke build.

    I have some, my only clinchers...I use them solely for the trainer/spare....

    They are ok IMO, I would not go out and buy another used pair...FWIW...mine came on my bike back in 97 and quickly got backup duty because they were out of true so darn often (prob the build).

    If they are in good condition, Atlanta's have been fetching big money on the Bay.

    It's going to be a stiff riding, heavy wheel. Not something I'd choose for anything less than nice smooth flat roads.
    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?

    One.

    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.

    Interesting, I just looked and they are getting a pretty decent bid. I did not know their collecter value.

    I bought them on sale (cheap college student) back in the day, honestly, they were the cheapest rim in the store at the time, had them laced to a 105 hub and rode the crap out of them...

    Are you trying to restore something or just looking for a decent riding wheel? If the latter I would pass...unless there is the 'old-school' factor your looking for. Mine weigh more than my current daily riding wheel which is not exactly light (Ambrosio on ultegra hubs)

    I'm trying to find something to better match my Pinarello Vuelta ...I've posted pics in another thread.
    I currently have black campagnolo wheels, but I think this might be a better look.
