Well I had to get a whole new rear wheel as I trashed it but I’m a man of my word and looked into getting some black rims.
AeroHeat 16″ from VelocityUSA where the rims of choice. A few people I have known have got these rims and reported them being pretty good so it was time.

Also had BBB’s seat post sleeve replaced as Harry mentioned it was looking pretty worn out & I'd personally noticed the seat post slipping of late. My main frame hinge was also stiff and Harry loosen that up for me so now BBB is much easier to fold & unfold.
I got a message 48hrs later saying BBB was ready and in Harry’s words “Looked great!”

Big thanks to Harry @ Phoenix Cycles for looking after BBB & for his top quality workmanship. Harry even came up with the idea of yellow wrist bands for the hubs, gotta say we is liking the silliness of it :D
