Subject: [CR]Wheelset FS: 700c Weinmann "concave" on Campy Record SF hubs.

Wheelset for sale, complete. These were, for some reason, the choice for tourists with deep pockets Back Then.

Hubs: Campagnolo Record, small flange, CPSC skewers, and acorn QR nuts. 126 mm OLN.

Spokes: DT, if I recognize the stamp correctly. 4-cross.

Rims: Weinmann "concave" profile. 23 mm. across outside flats, 16 mm across inside. With ferrules. Presta valves. True enough, and w/o any hop that I can see on the truing stand. Lot's better than on some bikes I ride.

Reasons for sale: (1) I never liked the design. (2) Or cleaning them. They aren't scruffy, but I do not propose to clean, polish, or otherwise abuse them to get them ready for sale. (3) They don't have "hook rims," so modern tires tend to remove themselves from the rims at very high pressure. (4) I have more wheels than I can comfortably use.

Terms and conditions: $110 pr. + your choice for shipping in CONUS. Or, an irresistable trade, +/- cash. Vintage stuff, or maybe a robust set of 8-speed wheels for my commuter bike, which almost daily suffers the indignity of a mile each way on the hard-pack gravel of the C&O canal tow-path in Our Nation's Capital.* As always, returnable if they don't meet your expectations; you pay shipping in that case.

As is my custom, I will select a winner 24 hr or more after this message is posted in Digest mode. Criteria? Compelling story on a particular bike they're destined for, list "citizenship," or whim. As a digest reader, I want a more level playing field. Want to do this quickly to be ahead of the holiday shipping madness, or hold until the New Year. Yes, I even have a proper wheel box. No, there are no tires - but there are rim strips.

One summer there was a beaver, too. Right homely to my eyes, even for a rodent. But really neat to watch it from 20 feet away. Its choice, not mine.
