    pic request: black wheels, gold nipples

    I know, its very superficial, but I'm building a set of wheels soon and thought I might take the opportunity to add a splash of color.

    wanted to see what black rims/black spokes/gold nipples might look like? thanks!

    a friend of mine is running gold hope pro 2 evos, black dt aerolite spokes, gold pro lock nipples, and black wtb i23 hoops. the look great, i can try to get a picture tomorrow.

    i understand the color scheme thing, my whole bike is black with anno red accents anywhere that makes sense. all parts are in for my wheel build, just gotta have them built. red chris kings, black aerolite spokes, red pro lock nipples, black wtb i23 hoops, even picked up american classic red tubeless valve stems.

    I have a few pictures of my rims on my bike with this setup. They aren't the best pictures but at least they are something.
