...not to long ago I picked up my 'new' set of wheels...

It has some Tune hubs. Not retro enough to be in pre-'98 section, so I run 'm in my 2001 Mojo...

I bought the 28h hubs (MIG75R + MAG170) in '98... rode 'm 'till 2009 and when I had them checked up, the flange of the rear hub broke.. They were laced on Mavic 517's BITD... and after quit a while Tune gave me a new MAG160.. and that for a 12 year old hub that got broken...

In the new set-up they are laced on ZTR's weighing about 550g for the front wheel and 650g for the rear... I'll have to try 'm yet, so pick might follow in a few days... Just 'upgrading' my '01 Mojo with these wheels and switched the SID to a C-type RC31, so the bike now is down to just under 19lbs :)

Since I didn't ride 'm yet, I can tell if these are my dream wheels in the future, but for now... they really are !!
