Getting ready to lace up some Ringle hubs and not sure which rims to use.
I have a NOS set of Sun UFO's(grey) and a NOS set of MavicX221(black) and somewhat decent used set of Mavic 517s(black). Or should I look for a silver set as the nipples are going to be turquoise. Will be for my Kona Hot. Mostly blue build.
Thanks mates

Sunsets mate if you can find a set. Naa only jesting Paul get some silver x517 rims they will make the nips stand out more like a tight top on a chilly morning
