Identical to the Solitudes, I have a pair of Alta Race's FS. rrp £400 these are super light, radial front and radial non-drive / 2 cross rear. Best bearings I've ever felt, now looking at £115 posted for these beauties !!!

That's probably becuase when they were available (about a year ago) most shops were selling them for about £120 !

Can't believe that for a minute. I saw one shop doing a half price offer which made 'em about £170 ish and that was the original Sapim spokes that used to break. These have been rebuilt by LBS with proper DT swiss spokes so think them more than worthy of over a ton !!
Not going to get into one of those STW type arguments though :wink:

Yeah, to be fair I got a pair from GB cycles for £120.

The main weakness was the spokes so if these have been rebuilt then they will be a good set of wheels. Good luck with the sale 8)
