    alright so I really want to get some blue rims to match my bike but the only ones I can find are the bombshell fatboys and the leaf cycles aqua. the bombshells are nice but they are kinda heavy, and the leaf cycles are also really heavy and don't have eyelets which makes me think the rim might not be as strong as they claim
    has anyone else found some other blue rims?

    Honestly, I've never had any issues with non-eyeletted rims. If you have the proper tension in the wheel build, there wont be any issue. Just a heads up... Leaf is outa the UK last I knew. Shipping would be killer..

    what about those spank rims? don't know much about them one bit, but I thought their stuff came in all the colors or something.

    I wouldn't worry so much about eyelets either.
