    Does Anyone Recognise these Wheels??

    Can anyone identify the make and/or model of these wheels? They're not OEM to the Scott bike.

    Thanks

    If they were Shimano RS80's they are a great wheelset although 10-speed.

    They are basically Ultegra level hubs with Shimano's combination alloy/carbon rims. Alloy brake track.

    I've had RS80-C24s, RS81-C24s, 9000-C24s, and 9000-C35s. Honestly the RS80s might be my favorite.

    HOWEVER, they look like Shimano R500 (actually R501) which are a more entry level alloy only set. Probably good and sturdy, won't be light.

    I'm guessing this.

    BTW from old Internet pictures and articles, looks like the R501 set will say R500 on it, but have a more normal spoke pattern than the 500s. I'd be willing to bet $20 those are R501's at this point.

    I have a set of R501 wheels that look just like those. ~2,000 grams for the pair. 11-speed compatible.

    edit: Oh, I think they cost me about $100 at REI.

    Yep, they are Shimano's entry level.
