I plan to avoid them because of that. At £43.50 posted, they are not cheap enough

Guys, do you think RS3s (I think) would look good? I'm umming and ahhing on a pair. I don't like the spider, but I can swap that I believe. I'm pretty sure they are 3s as they are curvey, and look as though they are secured by a lock-ring rather than bolts. I believe they were around back then.

If it has a lock-ring it is RS7 or 8. There are various spiders available, but not cheap!

That's a RS7 or 8, looks like a RS7, if you post a picture of the front I'll be able to tell!
Pace rings too!

Will try and get some up. I was emailed them, but on my laptop they don't appear, so I have to go on my old one, and upload from there. My question is then, is it period correct?

RS8, originally an RS7 but more metal has been removed to make them lighter.

This link implies 1998, but I thought the RS8 was after 2000.

A nice wheel arrived today. Red Hope, on Mavic X517 SUP for the front end that I got from Bhill22. Looks great. I've also thrown on an M737 chainset from another of my bikes to see how it looks. I like it, but think I've got my heart set on some RS 2s or 3s. I'll be patient, and when I get them, it will be completed.

For a "cheap bike" (didn't cost me much for the bike on ebay), it's cost me a fortune!

I went for a very reasonably priced M737 that came up on here yesterday from Troje. Black outer ring, silver the rest. My silver M737 that's for my WCF has blue chainring bolts, I will transfer them over, as blue will not suit the WCF. This will do until I can get a Middleburn RS2. I will be patient for this, as I don't fancy paying well over £100 when I know they sometimes go for as little as the £40 mark on ebay.
