Wheels manufacturing make high quality ferrules that are full brass in 4mm & 5mm housing. This would be a nice accent to your bike.

Cross racing in Japan, it's really something else and must be experienced to be believed. I don't even think the locals realize just how amazing the scene that they've built is since it's normative to them. To us, with outside eyes, however our time at the Bike Lore festival was a mind blower.
