I decided I wanted to finally try tubeless with my Surly, so I needed to find some silver tubeless compatible rims. I found the best selection of silver road wheels at Velomine. My Surly ended up being a not Shimano bike so I decided on a wheelset with made in USA Velocity A23 rims, made in Switzerland DT spokes, and made in Italy Miche Primato hubs. Velomine answered all my questions, and these rims have a lot of cool factor. Check them out:
Weight: Front 806 grams Rear 961 grams
Hubs: Miche Primato with adjustable bearings, 8-11 speed Shimano
Front axle: QR 100mm
Rear axle: QR 130mm
Spokes: DT competition 2.0/1.8/2.0
Spoke Count: 32
Tires: clincher or tubeless
These are some great looking wheels and much lighter than the ones I’m using now. Miche quick releases are also nice. I need to prep these for tubeless and mount my tires still.

I will update this post after I get my tires mounted and after getting some miles on.
