    Black open pro with 105 hubs?

    I'm looking to get a new wheelset for my jake and have decided on mavic open pros with 105 hubs. I'd like to find an all black wheelset, but have only found black rims/black hubs/silver spokes. I've seen them on others forum members rides. Anyone know where I can pickup a pair or do they need to be custom made?

    Have you contacted Colorado Cyclist? I just had a pair of open pros built up with Ultegra's and they certainly have a black spoke option. By my math, the black spoke option would have increased my price $35 for the pair. My total shipped cost: $266. If you are going with 105 hubs, it may be roughly the same with black spokes. Good luck. (by the way, the build job is wonderful).

    I checked out their site but they only seem to have an Ultegra hub offering.
