What's wrong with the metal colored ones? Don't they properly support your wheels? Sorry I just don't understand why anyone would care about the color of their spokes. The sport is not a cheap one, seems there are a lot better ways to spend one's money.

Just my opinion.

Maybe we both are. When I first glanced at your screen name I thought that it said "Song of Senility".

Keep in mind, the better your bike looks to you, the better it looks to a thief.

Dont you also have to use the industry nine wheels with them?

I think you can also get "tie-dye" spokes in titanium, if you want to add color

I would suggest that you email industry nine & ask them if their spokes will be useable on your wheelset. Try as he might, Salsa has not been able to talk me into a bling-bling Industry Nine wheelset!
