Hi,
i do have an set of Shimano System wheels WH-M765 (Shimano Deore XT), most likely from 2005, but unfortunately both rims are damaged.

As i do like the style and reduced number of spokes i would like to repair them, but it isn't easy to find the specific rims with wholes at the side, or only for a lot of money.

Any help is appreciated to find proper rims or even entire wheel set (WH-M959 or WH-M965 with similar low number of spokes would be also fine, I do have WH-M575 too but those are pretty heavy) for an attractive price.
Shipping to Germany would be needed.

Thanks
Johannes

I have a set of XTR M975 wheels but they just have regular spokes. They are superlight, but not cheap. I'm even going to be in Germany next week with work.

Hi, thanks for the offer, i‘m only looking for a similar shimano wheelset with this specific wheeldesign with reduced number of spokes, or replacement rims for mine.
The WH-M965 i was refering look like the picture below and other both mentioned wheelsets look similar.

Enjoy your time in Germany!

Hi, I have a wh-m765s wheelset, side hole straight pull spokes, brand new unused with the original shimano skewers.
They're a work of art.... no clue how much to ask for them if I were to let them go.

Thanks for your offer and sorry for delayed feedback. I've overseen your post, pls. apologize.
Actually i do have meanwhile another offer for a complete wh-m765 wheelset for ~100EURO and will go for this one as it's in a distance i can still check it and collect in person.
Just in case you're still wondering about the value of your wheelset, as yours is in unused condition you should not give it away for less then 150GBP in my opinion...
