they made quite cool stems with triangular front pieces and the nuke logo on them.

I had a crash with mine and some of the 'P' but most of the 'R' came off (was just stickers) making it a bit of an akward logo/ brand name.

:?

Got some largish hubbed Nukeproof hubs on my Fat Ti with ti spokes.

The Trimble has a very narrow early Nukeproof front hub and I have a laced rear hub that has a screw on casette. Heard that these hubs exploded quite often so I pretty much understand the "Nuke" part of the name now...
