Nice, I like this. I was thinking of blacking out the spokes on mine. This has convinced me to give it a try.

Other than than the video guy, who drove me nuts and turned a 2 min video into a small movie, I think it's a bad idea. Moisture is getting in and being trapped, rotting your spoke from the inside. Have fun flying down the road as your spokes start self destructing.

But, hey, they look cool. Right?

I was thinking the same thing. Seems like in a year they will be a rusty mess.
