I have a pair of FIR Antara 45mm deep section 700c carbon tub rims built on to 18/24 spoke Dura Ace 7800 hubs. They are in excellent condition. I bought them for the cross season last year and was then ill so didn't use them. I've now gone tubeless and switched over to Campag so I'm not going to use them. FIR wheelbags are included.

Not that I'm that bothered about such things, but these feel superlight - not that I have any scales to prove it. Over £700 new. After £275 plus postage.

I also have a pair of Challenge Grifo 30mm cross tubs, very lightly used. £40 posted or £300 with the wheels above. They should make an amazing cross wheelset

I know they should be in the road section, but it can be a bit of a desert there.

Thanks

Rich

And why should they get all the fun, I'm sure I'm not the only one enjoying a bit of bike porn here! :shock: Besides, they're meant to get muddy, which is more than some of the bikes on this side* :P :wink:

I'm surprised to see the tread pattern on those tubs looks exactly like the clinchers I raced on twenty years ago though! Still, if it ain't
broke... 8)










*this isn't aimed at anyone in particular - and I don't have any problem with garage queens - but if you thought it might have been aimed at you, you're paranoid and it was - double whammy!
In my best Nelson voice, "ha ha!".

Wheels now SOLD, but tubs remain.

The tubs are the same pattern as the clincher version - the clinchers have those weirdly thick furry canvas sidewalls, meant to prevent pinch punctures.
