    I've been looking at the Sirrus Elite and currently, Evans are selling the 07 model for £429.99p which looks like a good deal compared to list price of £499.99p

    However, I've noticed that the Evans' model comes with 'Jalco' wheels but the Specialized website states that 'Alex' wheels are fitted.

    Is there a difference between the wheels? By allowing a £70 discount, has Evans compromised the quality of the wheels? All other parts looks the same.

    Many thanks.

    I wouldn't worry. Probably a mistake by Evans. They quote the hubs as being the same model so it's only the rim that's different. At that price range i can't imagine one rim making a difference over the other.
    The discount is because the 2008 bikes are on the way. The saving comes from Specialized, not Evans.
