    What wheels are these?

    I got them from a mechanic..he forgot what kind they are..they are all black with black anodized braking surfaces front and rear. Black spokes and hubs with silver nipples. NO stickers or anything....anyone have a guess? They just have one small sticker that is the tire association abbreviation thing....

    the aerospoke comment was obviously a joke, you're right as to what those are.

    Well thats what I figured lol. But in all seriousness, does anyone of you wise folks have the slightest idea as to what they may be? They are very nice looking, light, and spin super nice. I would just like to know what they are cuz I may try to sell or trade them for some white deep v's.

    Well I already thought about those and those companies dont offer anodized braking surfaces that I know of. But they are a Deep V style rim, correct?

    They do not appear to be deep-v's. The lip just looks kind of thick because of the anodized braking surface.

    By the way, I sent you a PM.

    huh, thats weird. Yeah I really dont know what they are!? Is there a company who makes anodized braking surfaces on their rims? Or could it be a custom type thing? Dude wont answer my texts so I dont know where they came from.

    They are a lower end wheelset from an entry level bike, comparable to many of the $150 wheelsets you see on this board. They'll be just fine for you.
