Colored Spokes opinion

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Colored Spokes opinion

What do you guys think of colored spokes??

When I get new wheels for my bike (2009 trek 2.1 the beautiful shades of blue!) should i get super slick blue bladed spokes? would this be too much? I really like the look of red bladed spokes on some peoples bikes.


Thanks

Get the color you want and just rock it! Do not seek validation regarding your bike fashion choices, are you in high school ? I kid, I kid...

Ksyrium SL s are dead sexy for this reason. Actually its the signal red spoke that does it. They wouldn't be half as hot if they were all red.
