    Z4A T50 Carbon wheels

    I'm considering a used set of Z4A T50 tubular wheels. Has anyone any experience or used these wheels? Apparently, I've been told by the seller that they're made by Ridley. The seller is asking $700 for them and claimed low mileage (500 km). I couldn't find any review on the wheels which is the reason I've posted this thread.

    Other wheels I'm considering is Reynolds DV46T and MV32T.

    Thanks

    FYI: a DT Swiss 240 hub free hub body is all you need to switch them from Shimano to Campy. Colorado Cyclist has them for $60.

    No they don't. I bet most of your wheels are out of dish by 1-2mm anyways... which is all that it will be off when you swap.

    Man ... the wheels were sold out the next time I went back onto the website. I guess it's back to the thread ...

    anybody out there has any experience with Z4A carbon wheels? I'm in the midst of negotiating on a price.... which brings out another question ... what would be a fair price? He stated the bearing have been replaced with ceramic bearings as well.

    Take a look at ebay. There are some great deals on Reynolds SDV66 wheels right now. Several places are selling them for $1200. If you used the live.com cashback you can get them for $1000.

    $700 sound like a ripoff.

    They're likely the Equinox WH-005 rims. In which case, they're the same rims as on the $398 Vueltas from BD.

    These rims are all over the place. Definitely not worth $700, since you can get them for cheaper or the same price brand new.

    According to Reynolds, the 2008 models do not need to be re-dished and they can sell the free hub body directly to bike shop.

    This information is directly from Reynolds.
