Colored Spoke Nipples?

Recommended Posts

I'm getting ready to order some black rims and have my hubs powdercoated candy red (for my CRF) and was thinking about getting red nipples for the spokes. Anybody know who makes any? Or would that be too much red?

I don't know where to get them but IMO, I think red nips w/ black rims might be too much.

I think they'd be very cool, and much better looking than the orangy-rust color I'm starting to get...

Very nice DR-z!!!

I'm jealous lol... My first road bike is gonna be a drz, but nothing like that:worthy:

colored nipples may be excessive, I'd go with just plain, because when you tighten them the paint is just gonna chip off anyway... and anodizing fades...
