This wheel is rock solid and laced and trued by a pro, not me. The hub is powdered. So you dont like that color? Mask it off and paint it.
Good moped spokes are about $20 a set. These are $50. And well worth it if you have ever gone past 60mph on an urbX., shit, they are worth it if you have ever rode a kitted urban with 14 of the 28 spokes snapped. It's a wild ride! wooooooOOO!
