Nuke Proof to the Fleabay Gods

These nifty little dealie-o's were the wheels on the last Craigslist find I picked up. The bike was a Trek 8700 bonded carbon fiber frame, with a mix of Deore LX and XT parts, these wheels, a nice reasonably clean Rock Shox Mag21, and a pair of the ugliest day-glo green Michelin Wild Gripper tires you've ever seen. Anyway, Nukes were never my bag, so to the 'bay they go. Wheels are in great shape, laced up Mavic 217's, with very few miles, and feature the big fat over sized front hub, AKA 'Atom Bomb'. Them Nuke folks is clever.
Wheels ship tomorrow, and the new owner will be pretty darn pleased. I even put the Wild Grippers in the box, gratis.
