    Alternative to what? Just the aesthetic? Or its aerodynamic properties?
    Unfortunately all the all wheels with unconventional spokes (spin tri, hed3, mavic) are MORE expensive
    Think an ebay/craigslist aerospoke is your best shot, or even better - a lighter wheel (they can look good!)

    Wrap electrical tape around groups of four spokes on your existing wheel?

    Not only is it aesthetically pleasing, it is also extra safe.
