Just as the topic says – any tips when it comes to buying used?
On local Fbook marketplace is a set of 3 year old Zipp 404s. Only used for races, supposed great condition - $800.00. They’d be used for the same thing here - a few training rides, local short course tri’s, and then IM Maryland and 70.3 Eagleman in 2021. Clincher + rim brake. This is year 3 of triathlon and time to move to carbon wheels. Was going to go with the HED 6+'s for a grand, but…
Anything in particular I should be looking for? Any secret “deal brakers” (spelling error/pun) when it comes to used wheels?
For instance, I dont know anything about bearings and hubs. What should should I look at outside of cosmetics?
