ebay - carbonzone wheels - any one use them? Quote | Reply

So I have seen a few people who have bought the carbon frames online from Carbonzone (usually on ebay), but I was wondering if anyone has had any experience with their carbon wheel sets. Any feedback would be much appreciated!

These aren't Carbonzone, but this may be of some use to you;

I bought these 50mm carbon tubulars through eBay direct from Taiwan, (seller bmw7236) for Aus$650- including shipping. They are made by Gigantex, who also make Matrix, Planet X and several others.

I'm not very experienced, but they seem to be working fine. I've done 2 short course tri's and about 4 or 5 training rides on them with Continental Sprinter tubulars.

The quality is great. I can't fault them. The stickers are a bit cheap looking, but they're easily removable if I decide to get rid of them.

Communication from the seller was excellent, shipping was very fast and they were very well packaged.

I weighed the front wheel, it was 620 grams without skewers, (spot on what they claimed on the eBay listing). I've just bought some new scales, so I'll weigh them both once the scales arrive.







These were included;



Trial fit on my unfinished TT bike, (I've been using them on my Cannondale Six, but haven't taken any pics)

Road Bike Review has a pretty extensive thread on them. It's about 50 pages long and includes responses from one of the main suppliers- a guy who calls himself yishun stefano.

Other than the one customer, everyone there seems to be fairly happy with the quality wheels!

Does anyone else have any experience buying these wheels?

Thanks to ChrisG for bringing this to my attention as I don't get to visit ST to often these days.
