Am just in the process of putting my new bike together, a De Rosa Super King w/ Super Record mechanical with the frame in the black/white/red colour scheme
Wheels will be Bora's, am deciding whether to go for the more blatant coloured decals, for a total logo everywhere bling factor, or go with the more understated dark labels to tone things down a bit. Difficult to decide as I've never really seen dark label wheels in action.
Opinions?

I say dark, let the frame take centre stage.

I have Bora One 35's in dark label. They look sweet. The labels don't detract from the frame or the high gloss finish on the rims.

Having both I like the dark label best.....but beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

Dark Label is the only choice here. The frame is already quite flamboyant as a paint scheme, there is no need for an extra accent coming from the wheels. Designer speaking here :)

None. I like my wheels with no labels.
Less is more.

Whoa thanks guys that's a pretty unanimous verdict. At first I was thinking they just had to have logo's of course because the colours match, but the more I googled pictures I kinda thought it might be going for overkill where you just end up riding a billboard.
Will post pics when I'm ready to ride in a couple of weeks
