    All black wheels, hub/spokes/rim/tyre (I'll allow some logo's on the tyre) is clearly the only tasteful choice.

    With Frame and fork silver you need mech's, chainwheels and cranks to be black as well.

    I'll allow you some 'silvering' on the bars if you use CF ones however.

    Everyone knows black is the fastest colour.

    I have found that so many people have black spokes now it just looks boring.

    A good coloured rim and matching hub with silver spokes stands out.
