Wheel/spoke questionPEDDLEFOOT
Jan 6, 2003 7:00 AM
Has anyone ever had or seen a combination of black rims and silver spokes.My rims are black Open Pro with an all black tire.I was thinking of having them laced with silver spokes.Any opinions?The bike is a deep blue with black bars, stem ,and saddle.
and what color are hubs?cyclopathic

PS I have a set of old Mavic Cosmic Elites black rims/hubs with silver spokes and they look ok.

I have a set built like that (only probably not as nicely) and they, too, look fine.

That being said, my favorite wheels will always be all-silver.
Thanx for the pic.Whats the stem?(nm)PEDDLEFOOT
