Any bike shop with a Tip Plus account can order 'em for you, too.

Too bad that Primo spokes snap like string cheese. Just get Marwi, DT Swiss, or G-Sport spokes; they might not have the variety of colors that Primo/Tip has, but at least they'll last you a while. Besides, you can fix the color problem with some spraypaint or an airbrush in no time.

Wheelsmith spokes are much better than DTs if you can get 'em. I've personally had no experience with Marwi, G-Sport, or Primo for that matter so no comment.

Easiest way for colored spokes, tape up your rims and spray paint em. But I'd never do that to my oddysseys It'd probably make me cry.

Black hubs, black spokes, black nipples, black hoops. Black - it's the new black.

if you want to DIY, dont spraypaint em. the only way to get lasting color is to powdercoat them. otherwise, the color will just fade away.

it doesnt last. the only way to get it done right is powdercoating. i only use paint for temporary stuff, like if i know that im not gonna leave it that way for too long. for long lasting stuff, just powder coat it.

how can you do it wrong? you point and spray. i usually use 2-3 coats and a protective clear coat, and it never lasts longer than 2 months.
