Ah, that's a road wheel, right? I mountain bike exclusively, so that's probably why I didn't understand the bladed spokes. My wheels have straight pull round spokes with a fairly wide 26" rim and oversized hub. Thanks for the info.

My Ksyrium Elites black bladed spokes are the same.....not painted but some other type of application so I assume that it's oxide coating or sumtin like that.
