Total retail on parts alone is $158.
Asking $100. Willing to ship. I will also be at the Seattle Tournament in March and possibly the 2v2 in Vancouver in Feb.
No rim tape on it at the moment. I just use a single layer of cloth medical tape on all my wheels. Can put one on if you want. It works great and is cheap.
The wheel was built at the beginning of July and hasn't seen a whole lot of use. Some pickup use in July ,and then I was away from polo travelling until I moved to Portland in late September where it was used until last week. So ~4 months of use. Always used salmon pads so not too much wear on the brake track. There are a couple of small nicks on the drive side from mallets that do not affect performance.
