    Because he's in Japan.

    Anyway, to answer the OP's question, the front wheel looks like a Mavic Cosmic with a locking skewer. I don't think it's a Carbone, maybe someone else will know the exact type. The rear looks like a standard mid-section rim like an Aerohead. The hub is anyone's guess.

    I think what you may be actually looking for is the fact that the wheels are just laced differently. What this means is that you could find a Mavic Cosmic and it would looking nothing like his front wheel. Find a rim you want and that have it radially laced and you will get what you are looking for. Just make sure you use a colored chain because the front wheel will collapse without its cosmic support.

    i'm not sure why this one more than others, but that picture is pissing me off so much. i think it's the sunglasses and mash decal. looks like a fun bike though.

    The front is a Mavic Cosmic Expert circa 1997. No clue what the rear is.

    Those Mavics were strong as hell, I had a set or about 6 years.
