Okay, so maybe the Silver Wheel isn’t your thing.  The exact same thing, down to the DT Swiss nipples, can be had in black.  As mentioned on the Silver Wheel page, there’s a new kid on the block.  With no marketing except word of mouth, H Plus Son rims have quietly taken the handbuilt wheel market by storm.  Sometimes there is a product that is so good, it doesn’t need an advertising campaign.  When wheelbuilders say the H Plus Son rims are good, they aren’t just blowing hot air up your skirt.  Wheelbuilders don’t want to use crappy parts.  The H Plus Son rims have continually proven to be quality rims that are equal to any rim costing twice as much.  And the H Plus Son rims are available in a classic polished silver rim for those looking for that timeless silver wheel look.  Want to stand out in a bike rack full of murdered out bikes – silver wheels.

The H Plus Son Archetype rim is a semi-aero shape.  There are three great options for the Black Wheel to fit any budget.  You can’t go wrong.  Black is the new black.
