I'm not usually a fan of whitewalls but in this case I think they're a really good choice and compliment the chrome well. As for the wheels, my recommendation would be black rims and spokes with either black or chrome/polished hubs. I think chrome rims would lack enough contrast against the whitewalls and look washed out.
I really like this bike and look forward to seeing how you finish it!

I would rather opt for a marked contrast; something to make a loud statement; to go against the icy colors of the blue/chrome/white: Black.

In my opinion, I would choose:

-Glossy black G Sport Rims (with chrome G SPORT lettering-or not-)

-Black spokes

-Chrome hubs

If I were to go for a more vibrant and vivid look (but that doesn't really fit in with the rest of the bike's vibe):

-Matt black rims
-chrome spoke nipples
-black spokes
-matt oilslick hubs

If that bike were mine, here is what I would do according to my personal specs:

-Take one spacer out
-Put in a 9 inch 4 piece bar (and flanged ODI longnecks)
-Black plastic pegs (just in case for grinding..)
-Profile Z hub

See I am a fan of the Hubs, sprocket and stem matching at a minimum, BUT you COULD do rims too, and grips.

Yes I know! I only placed them on lightly just so I could look at it. The BB and headset bearings aren't even in, in this pic. I took everything apart and put it back in the boxes after I took this pic. I want to have all the parts so I can do a complete build with no distractions.

Thanks man! I'm getting anxious! I'm saving some cash for the wheels. Should have them before summer. Being a parent and working full time takes up a lot of time and money. Lol! Having a hard time deciding on wheel/spoke/hub colour combinations. Black and Chrome are my options. But what combination?

3/8/2016 12:39 PM

Black hubs
Chrome spokes
Chrome rims

I keep thinking black rim/ black spoke/ Chrome spoke nipples. But not sure if I should go black hub, or Chrome hub?

I know exactly how that goes. My boy is five months this weekend. Im on a custom build at the moment as well. Im just waiting for a couple more parts to come in before I announce it completely.

And on the color id say do black rims and spokes, chrome hubs and nipples. Chrome rims and whitewalls would draw too much attention to that area I think.
