Hi all I've just bought a supposedly brand new and unused 03 dale r1000 and have noticed that the wheels and break pads are not as spec'd

What I go:

- Rims: A-Class EXA ALx290 Rims
- Hubs: A-Class hubs
- Spokes: Unknown
- Tires: Hutchenson Basic Flash Road & Route (700x23c) tyres

edit: I believe A-Class are "Alex" from a quick google

What I should have got according to this:

- Rims: Mavic Ksyrium Elite
- Hubs: Mavic Ksyrium Elite
- Spokes: Mavic Ksyrium Elite
- Tires: Continental Grand Prix 3000, 700 x 23c

Before I bring this up with the shop are these wheel builds in the same league or am I getting screwed over?

The Ksyriums are nicer than the Alex wheels.

However, you bought what you bought, in this case the C'dale with Alex wheels. Just because Canondale specs the bike with Ksyriums, a shop can sell those off and replace them with another set of wheels. While such a thing is unusual, you don't have any right to the Ksyriums.

It also may have shipped from Cannondale with the Alex wheels. Companies reserve the right to make modifications to the parts specs. You can see what you are buying when you purchase the bike. Unless the shop told you the bike would come with Ksyriums, and then put Alex wheels on without your knowledge, you are out of luck.
