I vaguely remember Sun making different color ano rims in the mid-90s; I believe they were CR-16 rims, made in red and blue ano, along with black and silver, and perhaps another color.

yep, the sun cr16's could be had in blue, red and purple iirc. i tried so hard to get those when i was younger and i believe they were being phased out around 95 or 96. I think velocity may have made some normal style, non deep-v rims in the late 90s that came coloerd as well

My mate had [very dark] blue rims on his '99 Marin Mount Vision. I they were Mavic 221's - Maybe they were OEM only?

Cheers,

Chaser.
