My new Deep V Rims are in and my nifty powercoated Miche track hubs want to in some way be connected to them. I'm really thinking black spokes or perhaps even gold spokes. My problem is I can't seem to find a place that'll sell them cheap enough for me to really bother.
Here's what I'm thinking. I might just go ahead and buy some stainless spokes for cheap and spray paint the mofrackys black. Or should I just go ahead and fork over the extra dough and buy em black. Andrew Muzi from Yellow Jersey says its a waste of time because the black coating wears off anyway and that it'd be like an extra 40 bucks for black spokes (meaning forty dollars more than silver). What do you guys think? Buy the cheap stainless spokes spray em and lace em. Or buy the black ones, and if I should buy em where should I buy em from?
