    teal deep v's

    anyone seen em around?

    its hard to tell from pics online, or especially in a magazine how a color will look in real life.

    that being the case, i still can hardly find any pics of teal deep v's online and have never seen one with my own eyes.

    anybody care to post some up?

    I think velocity calls them "Sid Blue" if I'm not mistaken.

    haha ok not that i dont appreciate your comments on how awesome my wheels are going to be , i just dont want to seem like i was looking for reinforcement from the masses before i made my purchase. i was thinking they looked awesome myself, but just havent been able to judge on any decent pictures.

    so far i have some minor mods to the drive train, as well as a stem and bar upgrade. possibly an orange velocity deep v for the front on its way for the low low price of $50, and then this teal for the rear. im worried about looking too "miami" (teal + orange) being that im from south florida, but im not going to pass up on a quality wheel at a great price just because it might not be aesthetically pleasing. (that should quell any nasty remarks from the "you just want to look at your bike" bunch. d!cks.)

    once i get the wheels on, it will be picture worthy and you will be all like "oooooh wow. bienvenidos a miami"

    lol jk, im just getting antsy at work here. long day.

    ok thats a good point. i saw that in the catalogue, but there is BOTH teal and SID. what does the SID look like? i dont know of any colors named SID, but im no art major, either.

    VIVA LE ASSISTANCE!

    soooooo antsy.

    I think that's a major problem with velocity's color palette is that some websites call it a certain color and others something else. The sid blue I guess is something they came up with cause its in between their electric blue and the baby blue, or do they call baby blue celeste??? Damn Velocity!
