Anyone heard of dc-10 wheels?

Trying to buy a bike on craigslist, this guy is saying it has dc-10 wheel set, worth $300 alone, and I've never heard of them and cant find any info. Anyone know anything about them?

I was going to say - DC-10 wheels on a bike? Good luck pedaling those things!

You're saying DC-10, but the ad says CD-10. Both of which don't turn up worthwhile results.


I say to go and look at it. You'll figure out the brand real quick and then you'll know if they're worth it or not.

They're ALX wheels, they're gonna be your basic wheelset that probably came stock in a complete fixed gear bike not some custom built $300 wheels. $400 is about $300 too much for that conversion btw, especially now that you have so many choices in complete bikes with better components for around the same price.
