New MTB 650B Wheelset - In White?

Postby ValleyForge » Fri Jan 26, 2018 4:40 pm

My daughter has set me a challenge - she would like a white wheelset on her new MTB.
584-23 or 650B; any disc mount, and as much as I love her, it will be aluminium.

Anyone know manufacturers that are making a white wheel?

I remember seeing Mavic Crossrides in white.

Found these on the fleabay, but I'm sure you could source locally, maybe, actually I'm not sure.

Had a good plough through the Bay of Fleas and Bongtree but didn't come up with anything. Will try again.

Nope nothing. Was looking for thru-axles not just QRs.

All I can ask is "why?" White will look decidedly not-white and utterly revolting within about three minutes of being ridden.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.

My thoughts exactly. But, despite fatherly advice, she has asked for white.
