HED Ardennes Plus Black Edition (with tires)

I got these last October then bought a new disc bike in January. The bulk of the miles I put on them were inside on my rollers. These are THE absolute top-end alloy road clinchers you can buy from HED ($1500 MSRP). 24 spoke front, 28 spoke rear for added stiffness and durability. This is a special configuration, and can only be ordered direct from the factory. The textured brake surface goes PEEEEWWWWWWW when you slow down, and there is a noticeable increase in braking efficiency. My disc brakes sounds like a goose in a microwave, so I'll miss these HED's. The tires are Continental Grand Prix 5000 with butyl tubes. The rear has some life left and the front is good for a long while. I've pictured the wear holes for reference. I gave these a half-assed cleaning, so you could actually improve their appearance with a little elbow grease.

Venmo is my preferred money app, but I can do PayPal if you don't trust me. Price includes shipping to the continental U.S. PM me with questions.

These round rockets can be yours for $600 ...or... $630 if you use PayPal.
