Used-but appear to be in good condition Cane Creek Aerohead team:

http://www.canecreek.com/aerohead_ti.html

Are these wheels any good? what are they worth? the guy selling them didn't give a price. i will be trying them out this week. he was too heavy for them and kept breaking the titanium spokes and since cane creek doesn't make this setup anymore it was becoming a pain in the arse for him.

my other option before this came along was the excel sports swiss threat combo. should i stick with that setup for 600 bucks or go for these used ones for maybe less?

thanks.

Those are made with Velocity rims. You could get a pair built with ultegra or Chorus hubs for probably what the guy will want for them used. If replacing a spoke is becoming a spoke, I don't think you want them. I don't think ti spokes add anything but price.

The Swiss Threats are nice, but pricey. Again, consider a Chorus or Ultegra hub with the DT rims, you could save yourself some money. The DT rims are what 65 each, Ultegra hubs are 140ish a pair?, add spokes and labor (let's say $100), that's under $400.
