"2 "like new" Michelin "Dynamic" 700 x 25 "

"The wheelset and tires came as original equipment on my Giant touring bicycle, but I replaced them with lighter rims and smaller tires. ?

Lighter rims and smaller tires (I guess he means narrower) than 25 for a touring bike????

"The front wheel has 20 regular spokes (not bladed spokes) and the rear wheelset has 24 regular spokes. This makes it easier to replace the spokes if you need to (although you won't)."

And the seller has some prime swamp land to sell!
