I can spend about $300. I'm pretty sure I've been everywhere online and I can't find any set that aren't ridiculous $$$.
If I can't find any, how would the Vuelta XRP Track Team (http://bikeisland.com/cgi-bin/BKTK_STOR20.cgi?Action=Details&ProdID=611) on Bikeisland be? I like how they're laced there but those are heavy, and anyway I don't ever see Vuelta wheels to know about them.

Take the stickers off and they are all black. Or do you want black spokes/hubs too?

the IRO wheelset would be much better than those crappy Vueltas.

too bad with the Miches you have to use a Miche lockring. i hate hubs like that.

Yeah, I was interested in a completely black wheel, including the machined surface, which would have to be anodized.
I forgot about IRO wheels. They'd be going on a Jamie Roy frame anyway, so I might just do that.

Anodized machined side-walls? I doubt you'll find any of those because that simply makes no sense. Machining is when the surface is removed and smoothed.
Look at ceramics, instead.

yeah machined = bare metal

and yes the anodizing will come off eventually.

^completely overpriced, and junk.

Those look nice with the tire. I think these are only available in 32h. Would it be asking too much to find a rim that comes in 28h or 36h as well just to have the lower count in front? I might even build a set eventually.
I did have some black machined wheels on my old MTB that started showing the surface into the second set of pads. I hope it's nothing like that with nicer rims.

stock Soho S wheels are machined and then anodized.
