ready for it? no? :LOL: 😉

well, look what i found. these twisted spoke wheels aren't very commonly seen (like i remember how it used to be).
this is a 770g light mavic ceramic snowflake (twisted tom ritchey spokes) front wheel and it runs really true.
It is kind of a true survivor artpiece. it's also build with a rather fancy american classic high flange hub,
just the bearings are: yes, i need to mention that – dead. i did manage to purchase new skf quality bearings,
but i don't use it anyhow so better get your ride ready for hot summer at the ice cream shop 🍦

well, such a thing is not often offered, so what is it worth?
having to add some number i ask 180€ including new bearings plus shipping, but i really don't know exactly.

edit: reduced to 150€ > now 120€

feel free to comment. are others of these spoke twisters around here and used still?

Warms my heart to see these. I built a few pairs of this ilk in the late 90s.
work out spoke length, add 2 mm then one twist

Love a snowflake wheel. Mines been built since 1994 and the spokes are rock solid and the wheels always been true474360A7-32AF-4F38-8CD7-58B743D92991.jpeg
