MTBR Ad Here (More pictures on Ad) - Retro White Industries - Mavic Wheelset - Buy and Sell and Review Mountain Bikes and Accessories

Retro White Industries - Mavic 26" Wheels 32H hubs 8/9 speed.
Not sure which Mavic rims as stickers are removed. I believe they are 221 or 222 Mavics. They are steel grey as shown here on this Mavic Rim finishes page...

History of wheels - Purchased used in 1999, so not sure of prior history. My buddy worked for Yeti when they were still in Durango. I purchased these from another friend of his that worked with him at Yeti. The front wheel had a broken spoke thus requiring the rebuild I had done in Norcal. These ended up going on my brother's bike for a very short time and not being ridden much at all.

Both hubs spin smoothly with no play. Front hub does feel a tad "dry" however.
I threw both wheels on my Park truing stand and they both spin pretty darn true. There are a few nicks on the upper rim surface on the rear wheel.

Rear Wheel/Rim - laced with DT spokes. Appear to be straight gauge. Not sure on nipples but assume brass. There are a few nicks on the upper rim surface. Please see attached pictures

Front wheel/rim - I had this wheel rebuilt long ago at Mike's Bikes or Wheelsmiths in Menlo Park, CA. I can't find the receipt but they were rebuilt with Wheelsmith butted spokes. Can't recall the nipples but once again I think brass nipples on this one as well
