    My mate had those on his Canyon and found the spokes needed constant fettling.He thought he'd just bought a bad pair but according to a couple of mechanics it's a common fault(or was).His were 2016 models.

    Cheers Vlad. Same price as CRC, although they say theirs are the 2017 range. Can't understand how they'd be the same price if that was the case.

    Can get the 10% off that with CRC and Halfords too, but thanks anyway

    Tredz is part of Halfords, so does the 10% off not apply?

    Not too sure, but cheers for pointing that out. May drop them an email to find out, and also find out why they're asking the same price for a wheelset that is 1 year newer than elsewhere.

    Not CF wheels in my mind, it’s an alloy rim with some very thin CF fairing?!

    Anyway, I have a kidney for sale if anyone’s interested.
    This is a lot of money, but a bargain... that spec...

    Sell the rest and keep the wheels!

    I could just buy a new Mavic Cosmic Elite wheelset. I have them already and tbh, they're not so bad and look pretty good. About the same weight as the faux carbon ones too. Be a saving of at least £400.

    Do they have the black Exalith brake track? That would make them look slicker...

    To my mind alu rims are much more practical for rim brakes, wet roads, long descents etc, not to mention a useful £ saving. Not that it stops me really fancying a set of 50mm carbon jobbers.
