    DT Swiss XR1450 in black light use only. Weight approx 1450g.
    Done perhaps 200 miles.
    Front non boost 15mm axle
    Rear 135mm QR.
    29 inch wheels.
    Came with a used bike I’ve bought but surplus to requirements
    Not a many sets around so hard to value.
    Cheers

    Centrelock? The rear being QR might bring the value down unless the hubs can be converted.

    Quite old wheels with old spacing, so not a large market for these, not even sure this version could be put to 142×12 without changing the axle as well, so expensive, probably best letting ebay or the likes sell them for what they go for if you’re not going to use them.

    Thanks, I’ll search sold items and see if the rear hub can be converted.

    these are from before people wanted to know about internal rim widths.. but 240s hubs on 4.2d rims, aero spokes i’d think with that weight number.. so 17-19mm internal I’d guess.
    They’ll certainly be convertible to 142. but possibly needs the rear axle drifiting out , new bearings, new axle and end caps.
    still low vaule as a wheelset, better as hubs only probably. If they were 32h I’d be interested but these should be 28?

    They’ll fit a lot of gravel/CX bikes, so potentially still worth a decent amount. I’d stick on eBay with if you want top dollar…

    Sounds fine for likes of older hardtail built up as fast XC bike, or gravel as above.
    They’d likely suit my Swift or a burly version of the Peregrine..

    definitely a market I’d say.

    Those fulcrums are a lb heavier, same weight as most cheapo XC wheels. And the front needs converting for almost everyone. When I bought my frame what, 3 years ago, the guy threw in wheels like that for £25 and they were 15mm front.

    molgrips you need to up your offer to get me interested thanks!
    These are high quality DT hubs and a very light wheelset
    The only pair ever sold on ebay went for £186 plus post

    That’s not the only set ever sold on eBay. It’s the only set sold in the relatively short time frame they search back into. eBay does not expose historic auction data for that long. They were also sold in the States so different market.
