Brighten up your fixed or track iron with some candy coloured rims

Just in some sneak peak pics of the new Halo Aerotrack Rims - 27mm Deep Section 32H non brake surface rims.

The new rims will come in a wide range of colours: Green, Red, Purple, Blue, Silver, White, Black, Gold, Pink, Yellow.

The difference between these and Halo's Aerorage Rims is that the Aerotracks have a  deeper section and don't have a machined brake surface.

Halos's coloured rims are already really popular with fixed and Singlespeed riders, but Halo say they will do will do the job for anybody that wants to brighten up their bike. As the name suggests the Aerotrack would certainly work well on a track bike, although we'd probably opt for the Aerorage and its machined braking surface on a road bike or singlespeed.

Also available as complete wheels in Black, White, Yellow, Purple and Silver for between £81 and £94..

The rims should be available in 2-3 months.

Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.

Is the braking less effective with these?

well, I'd assume that a machined braking surface is going to be more effective than a non-machined one, hence these being the aerotrack rims
