7x were never real popular as I can remember. As Aesop mentioned, the RB-J1 Himiko were the ones people wanted.

If anyone has 1 or 2 in decent condition I may be interested.

I have one RBJ1, but it's not for sale. I use to have two then sold one, and regret it to this day. I seriously can't believe how I got my hands on these things when I was a kid.

I had to save up my lunch money for like a month before I could buy a used primo pro cassette, used spokes and used RBJ1(still looked decent with all the japan stickers and all). Then I had to save another week so i can get a bike shop to lace it for me. As you can imagine, they had a nightmare putting together a used wheel, but they got it done nicely.

I remember every man and his dog had 7x back in the day, but they couldn't hack much. I don't remember anyone commenting about Himikos. What that means I dunno

Still fond of haz lites as a budget rim but the chrome is no good. Some people seem to get lucky, but I gave away like 4 of them because of the chrome failing

These days I just run ano rims and save myself the anguish

They never fixed that? Me and a few friends got them when they first came out aaaaaages ago. They all looked horrible after just a few months. Thought they would fix that...

Good question Garth. I remember George commenting on it but I don't remember what he said apart from him saying that you could return faulty chrome rims, which I never did

2000-2001 I believe. They were standard on the XS 4X4 wheelset which I believe would have been around that same time period, maybe earlier.
