Same seller also has a $27,000 pair of Zipps. To be fair they are Firecrests.

The auction says "Please lick the icon to learn more about Velo Mine".

I don't think I want to learn more about them bad enough to do that!!!!!

Pink? Maybe. Maybe not. You decide.

Don't you think you could expect at list a LITTLE price break if you bought nearly $30k in wheels from one guy? Isn't that full retail?

These guys are actually great retailers. The Reynolds auction is prob a typo. I've gotten great prices from them in the past and all transactions were trouble free. If you contact them directly outside of ebay they can offer you much better prices on components/framesets. There doesn't seem to be much wiggle room with wheelsets though.

Other than the fact that Campy and Zipp (to name the first two I've noticed from them) have strict guidelines about not selling on eBay.

$3,790 is still way overpriced. maybe they meant $2,790 and accidentally listed as $13,790

You can make an offer, maybe the outrageous price is part of a marketing ploy?

Or more likely they meant 1379 and typed an extra zero.

a pair of 66's is just over $2500 so 1379 would be too low

There a big typo in the Zipp listing too, auction title says clincher and the description says tubular.
