Default is this GXP rim in great condition?

Found this rim on Ebay- seller states it is in great condition, doesn't look that way to me. Maybe my screen is acting up or I am getting to old to see right???

Doesn't look to be gouged, scratched, or curb rashed. It is a prime example what they look like with the OEM pads and infrequent washing. It does come off though. I can't believe they didn't clean it before selling. For the price, I bid on it.

Dirty and scratched. The guy could have cleaned it up a bit before taking the picture.

thats ok. I think I just found my new shoes! I was headed for a set of GXP....but super hard to find a decent set. So I am now looking at these. Still a very sharp wheel to replace my swoops.

Those will look good on your ride.

Back to topic: Two of mine have scratches and and a little curb rash, nothing I'm gonna complain about. That looks decent to me

Guess I don't get the heat of bidding. The rim in the first post of this thread sold on E-bay for $76 (plus $20 shipping)- but the reserve was not met.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...=STRK:MEWAX:IT

Yet there is a buy it now rim in from a likely better seller better seller for $50 (plus $30 shipping). I speculate this seller has a more accurate description and the rims are similar less the deep scratch.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...37649992643341

What I have learned from all of this is that getting a clean set of GXP rims under $500 is a good buy..... Now I know what they are worth and where I should start to negotiate if I have an opportunity to purchase.
