    WTB: 600 Tricolor wheelset with silver rims, 7 speed/126mm spacing

    I was considering having a set built up, but I thought it might be worthwhile to see if there's anything nice you folks would be willing to part with.

    The rim needs to be silver rather than dark anodized (this rules out a lot, I know).

    I would *much* prefer a wider rim - if I do end up having them built it will be on a Sun CR-18.

    HG compatible freehub preferred, but UG is okay.

    Looking for vg condition, or better. Perfect bearing surfaces, light sidewall wear, etc. Thanks for looking!

    Bump. There is one set I am waiting to hear back about, but I am interested in seeing more possibilities.

    I have silver eyeleted Matrix Aurora rims laced with stainless spokes to 1056 (light grey) hubs. 32h each, 100mm front, 126mm rear, but cassette body holds 7 (with spacer) and 8/9/10 Shimano/SRAM.

    My tricolor hubset is also 32h, laced with stainless spokes to dark anodized Matrix ISO-II tubular rims. front 100mm, rear is 130mm, 8/9/10 etc.

    Thanks Robbie. I am really hoping to find a silver hub/silver rim set, but I will keep the 1056 set in mind.

    So it is 126mm spaced with an 8/9/10 freehub? Is it just dished a bit extra?

    ^Those look nice, but I am looking for silver rims. Thank you, though.

    I have a set that are 32 hole, 7spd HG, Mavic Reflex SUP rims (eyelets, matte silver, not really wide, similar shape to Open Pro). There is some wear on the brake surface but otherwise everything is good with original skewers, etc.

    Yes.
    Reduced dish, not extra dish. The rim actually says "RDR" for Reduced Dish Rim.
    The rear came off an 8-sp full 105 STI group on a Klein Quantum. The front was mismatched and I happened across an NOS match.

    Hey Iowegian, thanks for the response - these sound nice - but I saw a tempting deal on some H+Son tb14 rims and decided to just go for it and have a new set built!
