Default Re: painting rims

220 grit, will do. Prep will certainly be a pain, actually thinking I could use a stout front rim anyway, so match the back and ride. But I want them black- can't decide. Budget matters. No front brakes, and none in my plan. I'm freakin CRAZY man! lol No, actuallly the opposite, it's probable that this bike will average 10mph. The band brake stops me very well, even with snow getting it wet. Time will tell. To be clear, you recommend zink chromate, not etching primer for these rims? Thanks!
It's cooler to not fall off your bike.
