Upgrade wheelset - Dura ace wh-9000 c35, should I wait for black friday?
 
I'm looking to upgrade the wheelset to Dura ace wh-9000 c35. There are some sale on the web at around $1250 USD. Are they going to be cheaper during black friday? Should I wait a bit more. I dont know much about the price history for this wheel. Also in general, how much lower we can get during black friday?
Thanks

Already being discontinued, price probably already low. Buy while you still can, or wait for the updated DuraAce wheel if you want a better wheel but at a higher price.

C24's are $733 at Merlin FWIW.

Hard to get cheaper than that.

C35 will be discontinued and replaced by C40 dura ace 9100 wheels. I don't know when that will happen but back in June dcrainmaker said this when talking about dura ace:

Autumn 2016: Mechanical and rim brakes (September/October)
Early 2017: Di2 related pieces
Q1 2017: Hydraulic related pieces
Q1+ 2017: Power meter related pieces, exact timeline still TBD

Where the wheels fit into that schedule or if that schedule is still valid is a good question.

You can get the RS81 C35 for $600ish...
Shimano Pr Whls RS81 C35 Carb Clincher - Wheels - Ribble Cycles

I don't think there is a meaningful difference between the rs81 and the WH-9000

Also, the RS81 C35's come in two versions unlike the the Dura Ace C35's. Look at the part number for the RS81 wheelsets and you'll notice the last two letters are either *CL* for the standard clincher model or *TL* for the Road Tubeless model.
