Changing the color on bike wheels/frame...

I am supposed to be getting a new bike tomorrow in the mail (see sig) and it has yellow wheels. I am not really into that. What is the cheapest way to change the color, and the easiest/smartest? I dont want to use paints of any kind. The bike also has yellow accents on the frame I was thinking of just covering them up with little stripes of electrical tape. Ideas?

A different bike would be easiest.

You don't want to paint the rims. Options: New wheels or rebuild the wheels with new rims.

Yeah I tried it out in the shop, than bought it online. I suppose I won't really know if its comfortable for me till after a 10 mile ride or so. Should be here in the next few hours, I am very excited. I though I looked everywhere but I found the blue 2008 version for $30 less somewhere else. I wish I saw that before I ordered the 2009, grrrr... yellow rims...
