Hey all!

I will be building a new wheelset for my Dissent. Fashion whore that I am (hey, i'm being honest) I need to decide if I want silver or black spokes and rims to go with my red hubs and nipples. I already have a wheelset with black spokes and rims, so the project is .....

show me how my bike would look if the rims and spokes were silver, please. :)

Anyone up for it? (sorry for the crappy pic and especially background) I'd do it myself but I have not the toolz or skillz. :nono:

As always, PATIA to all/any who are interested in helping. :thumbsup: :cool:

I got the skills and the software, but don't have the time. The spokes require a lot of work- lots of varying background surface to separate from the tiny spokes.

Maybe you could get a friend's wheel and temporarily whack them on???

Maybe try heading down the LBS to see if thy have silver spokes laced to silver or black rims- then just use your skewers. That way you get to see all combinations.
