Silver alloys with black caps look ****e IMHO, they make the spotless wheels appear to have dirt on them. Not good.

True that!

The silver caps that were on my borbets before they were robbed looked mint, a real nice finish to a well nice set of wheels.

Went really well with the polished valve aswell... Smart as!!

So you can understand why i was annoyed to find some little s**ts on their bikes had robbed the original dustcaps...

i know they are only dust caps, but at the end of the day, i have only had the wheels 2weeks and after paying almost 750 for them, i really didn't want anyone touching them... that includes stealing even the smart little bits of detail which were the caps.

ah well... i'll live... still a bit annoyed but there is really nothing i can do lol.

got my new locking ones now anyway, so that should teach the little brats.

=)

People are sad.

You either have black ones (stubby for extra points) or you get flush valves if you're cool.



Only gays get chrome or metal ones
