The silver wheel with no profile at all made my rear wheel/tire combo look about half the size as my front, so I didn't like it much at all.  I painted the rear rim black the other day and BAM it's much better :)

Here's what it looked like with the silver rim:

Amirite? Amirite?!  I also raised the seat up slightly.  Changing my ratio a little harder, and riding 60km on a raised seat kinda messed with my riding capabilities.  So I feel like a total noob again!
