    What about parkers own brand?

  3. 38mm - hardly 'deep section'.

    And what are they anyway ?
    Are they carbon rims with an aluminium braking surface bonded on ?
    I suspect not, more likely they'll be aluminium rims with a carbon fairing stuck on them ? They'll probably weigh a ton.

    Or maybe just aluminium rims with a 'carbon wrap', like these appear to be

    Pro is owned by Shimano, I believe.

    I know, you're right walker. It's just that when you're spending that much, it doesn't hurt to be clear. For one thing, there's only a picture of one wheel. The second advert you posted is made much clearer by the seller, in both imagery and description.

    I was very keen on the Spinergys until I worked out the true cost including import duty and vat.
    The second set are tubular wheels, I really want clinchers.

    Nice try though.

    I have near enough decided upon the planet-x clinchers. Just got to wait for pay day.

    Redbike, Planet X are doing a deal for the next 4 days where the deep sections are only £400
