Outstanding items at any price, well built, seem properly tension relieved, no untoward marks, preferably adjusted cones, simply ready to wipe over with IPA, tape and mount tyres to. I'm reassured by the odd traces of light oil, as this should be used in wheelbuilding. Merlin have always had a reputation for well built wheels, good prices and excellent delivery and they seem to have outdone themselves here!
Incredible for the price. Proper flows, wide and easy tubeless, on sturdy serviceable hubs complete with the strongest skewers about, built well and true, despatched next day as well. Chuffed.
