    Wanted Wheels:Shimano Deore ll black hubs on black rims. 7speed.

    I've got an interesting Kona build coming up and have decided on the wheels to start the build off. I'm after a set of the black version of the Shimano Deore ll hubs with the gold label laced to black rims, but open to silver rims possibly. Has anyone got any they'd like to part with. Cheers.
