Now that's a nice pair..............................of wheels! ;)

I like the fact that they look different from standard. If I'd spent a lot of money on replacement wheels I'd want folk to notice! >:)

So apart from satin black paint on the rim Baldydave ,they really look different with stainless nipples n spokes ,very different from the standard tubed ones >:)
Congrats on finally getting them roadrunner ;) no new rubber gone on then ,your obviously happy with the contis :)
They certainly look solid rims ,but a bit to solid for my liking but that's how Kineo bulid them their way, making the rim look smaller in their design,maybe it would look different with black spokes n nipples :) but your happy with your choice and that's all that matters ,enjoy the ride ;)

Haha I actually do think they look different enough from stock for people to notice. :) The ring of exposed nipples around the rim would definitely get people's attention IMO. From an engineering point of view I think it's a nicer solution, though that's a debate that has been covered before.... Each to their own, though. :)

I'm slowly saving up for a set of Kineos, but I'd want the hubs in gold. :)

+1 Anybody who's ever ridden a bike with spoked wheels would immediately recognize there is something very different about the Kineo design. I don't doubt that it's a highly subjective matter of opinion, but for my money (if I were to go for new wheels) it's gotta be the Kineo's.

They are very contemporary looking and suit the 9Ts style IMO.

They attracted a lot of attention at the bike shop when the tyres were fitted. They'd never seen spoked wheels like that!

Haven't been for a ride yet....

Slowly saving up for it as well. To a motorcycle enthusiast it will look different from the stock. But to my wifes eyes it'll look the same which is a plus! ;)


Gaaasss!
She probably says the same about her husband on shoe forums! lol ;)

Gorgeous. Excellent taste and congratulations. Mine would be with golden nipples and hubs. Alas, college tuition payments . . .
