Wheels for my Pogliaghi

I'm beginning to build up my new Pogliaghi, and I can use some advice.

As you can see the frame is all-black, so I will be going with all black Campy group components (9 speed), but will highlight that with white cables, bottle holders and white saddle to match the decals. I also want to go with black wheels sporting black spokes for clinchers, and that is where I can use some advice because I'm just not sure whats out there. I am not crazy about aero style wheels and would prefer something a bit more conventional, but I am open to all opinions

Thanks in advance!.

Don't know if you're picky about the brand, but they do make H Son TB14s in black. Pretty traditional looking.

Very nice.

I've never heard of them, but they do look good and really pretty much what I'm looking for. The price is right as well. Is that the brand name or model name? And where are they made?

The brand is H Plus Son, and the tb14 model is quite popular with those desiring a classic looking rim. I’ve built four wheels with the polished version, and very happy with the results every time. They are made in China. I actually ordered a 28-hole version direct from them for one of those wheels. Very smooth transaction, although the shipping price was steep, and the end cost including shipping was about the same as the other 28-hole rim I was considering.

I suggest that if you go with black rims. Try and find ones that have brake surfaces already machined down to the aluminum silver substrate (no anodizing at the brake tracks.) from the factory. Just so you don't have to end up with anodizing wearing off unevenly at the brack tracks, which could ruin the looks of the bike after some time, especially with black rims where the unevenly worn off aluminum colored areas will really be noticable.

Not yet but in the works and its Italian ;--

Reminisce the era of black Lamborghini Countach with gold Campagnolo wheels.

Repainting the frame -chrome was bad so I figured a full coating with gold outline would work. The particular frame also has unique pantograph in that I might fill with gold.

Though prefer tubular there are pretty sharp looking clinchers in gold.

The only problem I have with that is if I go with tan walls, or even possibly white wall tires, then there are 3 colors, black, silver and then tan or white. Not sure I like that.

But I definitely get your drift.

Well, one way to deal with it, if you really want all black rims, is to keep a fresh stock of big, black Sharpie pens with the broad tips to use to touch up the worn areas of the rims for any picture sessions or bike meet shows...
Easy, just put the Sharpie pen against the braking surface and spin away, till you do not see any silver anymore....
Just remember, the "fix" is only good till the next ride....

You are really peaking my interest!

I'm really a Ferrari man, but Lambo's are a close second, wink, wink,, and I can definitely remember that era.

The wheels for my Pog will be the last item I buy, so I have some time. I hope you can show me something within a month or two.

Campy Protons- low profile black rims, later versions have black spokes. Good solid wheelset and will work with 9 speed Campy. Neutrons from same era are the same, but a little lighter.

Yup, and it works great on worn out dark anodized rims.

The warnings on the bottle are a bit scary, but I think I'd give it a try.
Hmmm...."corrosive".... You know that's pretty much what anodizing is. It's just a few microns thick of corrosion on aluminum....
Thanks for the tip!
