Here's some stolen info about these wheels from an old eBay listing:

In excellent used condition with a few marks form normal use.
Ceramic surfaces are excellent and have loads of wear left.
Rear wheel can take 7 (with spacer), 8 or 9 speed cassette. (Maybe 10?)

These are designed as a system, with each component selected by Keith Bontrager the legendary guru to loose weight and gain strength.

- DT Hugi 240 Bontrager spec hubs in black. These are the equivalent of Chris King (some say better). The ratchet drive is supposed to be stronger than Chris Kings and the DT's are lighter.
Maintenence free stainless steel cartidge bearings, sealed within the hub body. Lightweight oversized aluminium axles.
- DT Revolution black spokes, spec'd by Keith and laced by his design; 24 spoke radical front, 28 spoke rear with radical on non-drive side.
- Bontrager Ceramic rims (black). Double eyeletted, light and strong with great braking and Bontrager dependability. They are again front and rear specific. The rear rim has off-centre spokes to balance the spoke tensions, dramatically increasing wheel strength by reducing dish.

Front weight - 700g
Rear weight - 900g

Both wheels are smooth / true.

This super light high-end wheelset and perfect for your retro bike build and extremely rare.
$350 plus shipping.
