I'm in the process of building up my Gazelle. I bought a set of tubular wheels, Campy Barcelona with a sort of 5 sided polygonal look to the outside. This gives them a fairly deep look when they're really not all that deep. They're a sort of brushed aluminum look. So then I buy a set of Gommitalia Espresso tires which are a nice solid black tire. I stretched them on (my first ever mounting of tubular tires) without gluing. When I put the wheels on the bike... I realize I cannot stand the way it looks. The only obvious solution is to get black rims for the black tires and some gum walls for the brushed aluminum. Seems a bit spendy, but I was planning on getting a lighter set of wheels anyway, as well as a set of clinchers for the bike.
Anyone else have similar experiences?
