I've decided to go with tubulars on my Lo-Pro TT project, so to pay for the parts these wheels have to go!

They're a pair of Campagnolo Shamal 650c deep-section aero wheels, from the Record end of the range from around 1992. Both wheels have 16 bladed spokes and roughly 42mm deep rims. The rear wheel has a Campag Exa-drive pattern freehub body and takes an 8-speed cassette.

They're in very good condition, although they have been used, though not a lot. They have a few small scratches but generally they're in great condition and the decals are more or less as new. The rear I'd say is probably 9.5 out of 10, the front 8.5 out of 10, but only because it's had one ding from hitting the edge of a pothole. This has been straightened and carefully re-profiled and in practice makes no difference at all to the trueness of the wheel or the braking response.

Both wheels have been serviced and trued and they're running superbly. The bearings are lovely and smooth and the front wheel is true to within 0.5mm radial and lateral runout and the rear 0.5mm radial and about 0.7mm lateral.

They're £180 posted as wheels only (with original QRs and Velox rim tape) or for £230 I'll include a pair of brand new Continental GP 4000s (worth £80), lightweight inner tubes and a Campag 12-19 8-speed cassette in great condition.

EDIT: the front's now been sold, sorry. The rear is still available and is in superb condition. £100 posted or £130 including new GP4000 tyre and Campag cassette.

SECOND EDIT: Both now sold - thanks!

Hi - the front wheel's now sold, sorry. Just the rear wheel available. £100, or £130 including new tyre and slightly (but not very) used 8sp Campag cassette.
