I'm almost decided to buy a used pair of wheels, but I can't decide which one.
One is a BORA ONE 2011, 50mm http://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB- ... ubular-_JM
The other one is a BORA ONE 35 2014. http://produto.mercadolivre.com.br/MLB- ... ke-pad-_JM
I live in Brazil, I can't pay for a new one. As a campy fan, I ever dream to have a Bora 50mm, but the Bora 35 is newer, more overall wheel, have new techs like 3Diamant brake surface and came with better tires.
I pretend use the wheels in some criterium racings and some special rides weekends, not a every day wheel. And I my weight is about 100kg.
What to choose?
Some advise to a guy that never ever used tubular tires are welcome.
Thanks

I would go for the 2014 Bora 35, I cant open the links but overall I prefer the slightly shorter height.

1. They are newer and probably have less miles in them (maybe not)
2. Will be a tad lighter

What is the price difference/tires?

I ride 38mm Open mold tubulars for my everyday wheels. Depending on how the road condition is in Brazil you should be perfectly fine.

if only can pick from these 2 options.
I may go for 2014 Bora 35, it's more for Multipurpose use.
Good luck!

Don't race what you cant replace.

You dont know the history of these items, so be extremely careful what to buy.
I never would buy wheels used online without seeing them myself and thorough inspection.
