DT Swiss 240 wheels$380 GBP
Used but in very good condition, DT Swiss 240 carbon wheelset. https://photos.app.goo.gl/y36eGe8QyCJbp7VS8 DiCut hubs 20/24 hubs laced to 50mm Stren carbon rims. Shamans 11 speed freehub. I have owned these from new since they were hand built for me by https://www.jimthewheelbuilder.co.uk/, approx August 2020. They are superbly fast wheels, sufficiently aero and stable in wind. I don't race on the road anymore, but they have helped me win the non-aero prize in a local TT! I have only ridden them during summer since building, and mostly in the dry. The front hub is still silky smooth, and the rear still turns nicely. Neither will need new bearings for a while. The wheels were trued in the past 2 months. The condition of both rims is excellent. They have the usual blemishes and imperfections expected, the odd tiny scratch and mark, but nothing that goes below the surface of the carbon. Stren are a reputable manufacturer (used by Wheelsmith UK) and although they might not be finished as nicely as Enve, etc are very good value rims and dependable. Spokes are Sapim CX-Ray (I think!). Without tyres I would say they weigh about 1400g. I'll throw in the Vittoria tyres and tubes, which have plenty of miles left in them. I have some allen key, or QR Cero skewers. Wheels will be suitably packaged in a wheel box and sent within a few days, tracked and insured. Any more pictures, or questions, please let me know.

Amazing. I hope to try it one day. My very first MTB ride was in 1983 on the bit of the ride from Askham fell up to High Street, I then waited until '87 until I got a proper MTB and rode the trails from Helton to Howtown to death. I never even knew you could ride anywhere else back then!

Tech Randoms: Nove Mesto XC World Cup 2021
@hllclmbr: I doubt it. I ride both wide bars and narrow road bars 8-10 hours a week and don't notice any difference ever. Surely your rib cage stays in the same shape almost all of the time, and your lungs occupy the same space?

Video: Mathieu van der Poel Returns to World Cup Racing After Nearly Two Years Away
Might be stating the obvious, but I think his success in XCO has got a lot to do with how much bigger the talent pool is in UCI World Tour road teams. Same reason why Pidcock does so well. It'd be great to see Van Aert or Vos have a go. I doubt the leading XCO riders would feel the same about them joining though.
