Hey guys, I have my eyes on a pair of 2nd handed Corima MCC wheels. I talked to the seller and he says that it has 2000km on the wheels. Do you guys think 2000km is a lot for a pair of wheels that were used as daily wheels? How would the brake track wear be?

If he says 2000km then it's probably more like 5000km. I wouldn't be concerned for most wheels but those low spoke count wheels would make me very nervous. If you can't inspect in person I would pass.

Hi PrettyA. I'm riding the MCC's as my main wheels. "a lot of K's" is relative. By that i mean 2000k on the flat vs 2000k spent descending, as per Bluechip I think you need to eye ball the wheels before handing over the cash. I hit some decent potholes and the odd piece of wind swept debris and they have caused zero issues for me.

Thanks for the amazing feedback, I'll try meeting up with the seller and take a look at the wheels before handing over the dough :D

The wheels will be fine in terms of durability. The spokes are bombproof and the hubs can be easily serviced.
Just check the brake track of the rims. If not worn then go for 'em.

2000km is good month. Every year I have one month of over 2,500km.

Good if the price is affordable.
2000km for carbon brake track is too short to give damage them.
they have a plenty of miles left at least 20000km.

2000km isn't a lot at all, but I think a lot of people lie about that. For someone who rides a decent amount, 2000km is only a couple months of use.

Brake track wear depends on many factors. Could be good for 100,000km, or be ruined by one long descent.

Depends. 2000KM of wet gritty ride owned by someone that rides the brakes could have some wear on the rims. I have over 15,000 KM on my current 38mm carbon clinchers from Farsports and the brake track and the wheels still look great.

I put over 20K miles on my Reynolds DV46's and the brake track still looked fine when I sold them off. I did clean the pads after using them in the rain, but that's about the only concession I made. I rode those in dirt, rain, bunny hopped and whatever else I felt like.
