- White rims…?
I actually have a bit a dilemma with mine. I have 2 sets of wheels with hope hubs. The white Syncros DS23s and a set with ZTR355s. One set needs to be dismantled so I can use the hubs for some new wheels. Which should I split? The wheels that aren’t split will be going on a SC Blur XC carbon, so I’m tending to favour the lightweight ZTRs for that. The DS23s do look nice though.Posted 7 years agobigblackshedSubscriber

Some lovely bikes there but I can’t help thinking that white rims are, well, a bit boy racer… Past an old Ford Capri today finished in blue with white wheels – it looked just like Druid’s ragley. Not that I don’t like the Capri, but it was a generation thing

Nothing wrong with blue and white, mine before the frame swap
I didn’t say there was anything wrong with white rims on a blue frame. I’m just saying that druidh has broken “the rules”. Call yourselves a bunch of Bike-Tarts? 😉Posted 7 years agoScapegoatSubscriber

Can you get the white Crests with Pro 2 hubs in a 26″?
If you get a custom build possibly. Try Cycle-fast.co.uk
If it ain’t listed give Dave a ring. He builds any combination you care to think of, so if you can buy white Crests, he’ll build them for you.Posted 7 years agoD0NKSubscriber
My rear Olympic rim is white – they were half price. Look tatty quick, heavier and noticing some corrosion (road salt maybe) that I’ve only seen on really old anodised rims before.
Meh not a fan, some of them ^^^^^ look ok but I’m generally not a bike fashion tart.
Aesthetic fans will be pleased to know the front wheel is not only black it’s a different make, style and spoke count 😯Posted 7 years ago
