    I'm looking for wheels with 12g spokes with black rims AND hubs, or all black. Anyone know where I could find that?

    As of now, the closest I've found is this Husky:
    http://www.huskybicycles.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?

    But I'd really like it to have black hubs.

    Also, the Husky is rim is aluminum, will that be ok on a MB? I was thinking it would since it must be stong enough for their industrial bikes.

    Thanks

    I'm riding on alum shimano rims with no problems. I know if you read around alot of the peeps are riding on alloys of some kind. I've looked at the husky site their wheels look very good to me.

    that's what I was thinking, I've actually pedaled on alum rims over rocks for miles once and not only were they fine they stayed true somehow!

    this is the link to the wheel btw, I messed the link up last time. http://www.huskybicycles.com/Merchant2/graphics/00000001/505-169.jpg

    any other options for black 12ga wheels? the huskys are looking good, but they are a bit pricey.

    that Husky of the two looks to be the better deal
    with the hub brake and all -- I like that THING

    weighing in at a whopping 30 lbs
    price one pays for one heck of a killer looking strong wheel with brake

    yeah I agree :) I don't think they are quite 30lbs though, the site says -

    "PLEASE NOTE: ITEM WEIGHT SHOWN THROUGHOUT THIS CATALOG IS SHIPPING WEIGHT (DIMENSIONAL WEIGHT), NOT THE ACTUAL WEIGHT."

    I bet they aren't very light though :)
