I just saw this auction on ebay for NOS Araya Ti rims. Maybe I've been living under a rock but I've never heard of such a thing. Has anyone ever used these? Any good? I'm tempted to buy them just to check them out in person...

Here is the link

Japanese Professional Keirin rider's rim of choice in the late 80's. (They are required to buy their own equipment and it must be certified by the racing association.) Superlight and able to take the torque of some of the hardest sprinting there is. Not surprised the bidding is going as high as it is. Track racers will definitely be interested.
