Photo request - H+Son TB14 in grey anodized

I have a really difficult time deciding which rims to get for my new wheel build. The H Plus Son TB14's in grey anodized look nice in stock photos, but I would love to see them on a finished bike with silver hubs and spokes. Has anyone here done a build like this and could maybe post a pic or two?

Just saw this thread. I have built both polished and grey/dark grey anodized rims from them. No black. Built dark grey ones on a former Specialized Allez SE. Looked great with tan wall tires (of course!).

Sure, here’s some more:

It’s worth mentioning that ridding in the rain and mud a fair bit has removed some anodizing from the brake track. I don’t mind personally, and imagine it would last far better if ridden in drier conditions, or at least not inches of mud... They look similar to having a machined brake track at this point (especially from a few feet back), not unsightly or splotchy to my eye.

The rims built up very easily in my experience and have stayed true. Not the lightest, but solid.
