Decision Time

Now that we have finalized what wheelsets we will be getting from Spinergy, we need to decide what color spokes. Should we be total dorks and go with something that matches the bikes? Spinergy offers the PBO spokes in several colors including white, black, red, yellow, and blue. Since our frames are going to be painted white with blue stickers and red trim it seems we have three different colors that would work. Now its just a matter of deciding, easier said than done in some cases. SRAM is also offering us the choice of colored hoods in both red and white. I like the idea of white hoods, but am afraid that they will just become instantly filthy. Sure if we had a team mechanic to scrub down the bikes after every ride the white hoods might make sense, but I don't see that happening. The other thought we were floating around was red hoods with red tape, or red hoods with white tape, or red hoods with blue tape. I know this sounds really bogus, but we want the bikes to look good. Hmm what would a PRO do?

i know i'm not on the team but, i think red spokes would look really cool with the white frames, but that's me

I like the idea of the red hoods and white tape. I will be sporting that look on my cross bike next year. Just remember if you go white tape, you have to go with the white saddle or risk being totally unPRO.

As for tires, I would reccomend the vittoria diamante, they run a pretty high TPI and Inflation. Clark
