    Blunt Wheelset in Black?

    I have been scouring the internet to try and find a set of the Velocity Blunt 650b wheelsets in Black and all I can find is silver. I really would like to find some already built and not have to have someone custom build them.
    Also, I noticed that they are always built with XT hubs, can you bring the weight down much on this wheelset by going with another hub, if you were to custom build.

    Yes, the XT is relatively heavy, so getting a rear built with a lighter hub won't be hard. Our shop has two of the black Blunt unbuilt rims, but you should be able to find them somewhere, I'd think. If not, let me know.

    You could go straight from Velocity and get their new lightweight ATB hubs... They aren't going to be the best hubs out there, but they are fairly light and not too expensive. Plus, Velocity is a breeze to deal with.
