Personally I probably wouldn't. You can buy Mavic disk specific rims brand new for £20 each.

Yep if you buy the hubs from them they should build them up for free. They didn't charge to fit my headset to the Inbred.

I think a wheel build will normally cost about £30 each wheel (not sure as I always build me own). If Downlands do that for free that'll be a bargain. Fitting a headset is just a few minutes work, buiilding wheels is a different ballgame.

Building onto secondhamd rims is always a bit of a gamble if you dont know their history. Dont forget to factor in the cost of new spokes.

Agreed - get a new wheelset if you need one.  I'd be suprised if downlands would build you a wheel for free!

I didn't know they charged that much. Mine are over 2 years old now so they have probably put their prices up several times since. I don't remember Herbert's charging me to build my wheels.
