Post subject:  Silver 29er rims?

Hi,

For my 40th I’m building a 29er hardtail but I’m sick of black rims.

I’d like some silver rims instead.

Any ideas/recommendations?

I’m not the smallest or lightest of fellas so strongish would be great.

Cheers

Ooo, i'm doing something similar for my "approaching 40th"
What frame you got?
How wide a rim are you looking for?
A mate of mine bought some new spank silver rims (26") for a jump bike a while ago. They may do a 29"
Halo might do some...
Er. Doubt Mavic do these days but you could see what's around

Hi,

I’m saving for a Banshee Paradox as I have a Prime and my wife has a spitfire.

Trying to stay away from red parts too (my weakness).

I’m a big guy so want something about 30mm wide but can go narrower.

I just don’t want an ebike like some of my mates - why go heavier when I’d like to build something lighter.

Ebikes are ok but just not for me.

Try Velocity in the USA for a Blunt. Or you can ask Rad15 in Holland if they can supply some Ozone30's without black anodising?

Wider doesn't necessarily mean stronger tho eh.
Be interesting to see what you come up with. Can't be many about
