Silver, but you have to go silver on the spokes and nipples too. Silver and black go well together, though with the red there too I'm not sure.. :noidea:

Have you said what colour spokes you are getting?
My view is black hubs if you are having black spokes, silver hubs with silver spokes.

Yes, I was having some winter wheels built up and the "stock" option came with siver spokes. They said what colour of hub do you want so I went for silver. I think it works quite well (as long as you keep them clean). It has silver allow nipples as well to complete the "look".

I'd had RS80s from Shimano that had a gunmetal coloured hub that I always though looked great.
