heads up for anybody after a set of wheels

Postby dimmockg » Fri Mar 08, 2013 16:13 pm

just browsing whilst at work (boss out of office), stumbled across these:

http://www.bike-discount.de/shop/k735/a ... -disc.html

seemed such a good price and seem well reviewed and a decent weight as well

rude not to order a set then :)

i have gone for a set of these :)

processed payment via paypal and have this:

Your funds will be transferred when the merchant processes your payment

on the email from paypal, does anybody know what that means?

the payment is showing as "pending" with paypal, but has already come off my credit card available amount and the order seems to have registered ok on bikediscount.de (however it doesn't state processing or anything)

is this simply a matter of the seller accepting the order / payment?

just unsure as never seen this before

thanks

Yes, they only process it if they have stock to send, otherwise they refund it straight away. As it's Friday night, they are probably out eating sausage and drinking beer like good little Germans.

Pain hurts much less if its topped off with beating your mates to top of a climb.

It was 11655g I saw it in the description after the link was first posted up, they must have corrected it after you guys seeing the mistake.

I was looking at getting a pacenti tesla ultralight wheel set from superstar but going to compare

Thank God for that then I thought I was going cross eyed looking at the ad :)

thought they were a pretty good price for the weight / spec

T'is a decent deal, but superstar hubs on stans rims are similar weight and price, and from experience Stans are far tougher than DT who make rims out of cheese. Not sure how good the dt hubs are, but personally I'd take the stans rims over DT any day.

DT hubs are pretty good :)

Though the rims are a mixed bag, one set of DT rims i've had were soft another are like iron man but harder :lol: . i'd prob go get set of stans of superstars instead though easier on the old tubeless if you fancy it
