Coloured rims?

Postby Dunk » Fri Jul 20, 2007 17:58 pm

As my reign is a bit dull i thought i would lighten it up with some coloured rims. So what is there out there that i could get?

yes it does Dunk. as the wheels you have now will will give a guide to the posible new ones?

ie, DH,AM or XC as the reign could be used for any of them really.

Max weight 600g will have 2.3 tyres on it so does that make it easier?

Bloody ugly lol! Its a lot of messing about IMHO, esp as you don't have much money. It would be best spent elsewhere, thats a good wheelset.

i have yet to see anything from spank that is new. other than their colour choice.

Dunk do you know how many factories make rims?

you currently have a very good wheel set.

if you want colour look at cheap replacements. pedal ,grips etc....

Dunk, your wheelset is one of the best you can get for reasonable money, and plenty strong enough for your weight and riding!
