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?

Else choose any and polish yourself. Wont take long to get back to polished!
