Thanks. I have messaged them. They are the black version. Got a good deal on them! I was as unaware of how uncommon they seem to be as much as the seller was!

Been looking for large flange black and they are rare :). I have some small flange in black but not as classy with the large flange with the Sheriff Star style cutouts.... Or perhaps its better to say campag copied shimano lol.

14-16 double butted? Are the Rims Mavic MA
