Hi Synigod,

Hope you’re having a blast with your spokes.

I’m torn between leaving my mags stock or powder coating them but am slowly leaning towards the latter, and will probably do this once I have a more complete vision how to paint the bike (it’s all black at the moment but may go to a matte grey/brown tank/seat look).

I’m curious — what type of black did you use on your mags? (Ie gloss, satin, matte) and what did you consider before making that choice?

Thanks!
Caramel

Hey Caramelgq
The black options I had were limited at the time but I ended up choosing something that my powder-coater had a sample of. I wanted something a little deeper black so a chose a semi gloss black. I still love the mag wheels but I don't envision the need to ever switch back to them from my wider spoke wheels. I can help you with your issue of being torn. I'll sell you my pc mag rims :p lol. Then you'll have the option to put whatever you want at the time on.

If you do end up going the route of pc-ing your rims then let me know and I can send you a write up of what I did. My bearings were not easy to get out. Make sure you get a new set of bearings and seals as well.
