The price has gone up a lot since I had mine done on my XC for $350 about 6 years ago. I bought a set of good used wheels from someone on a forum when sent them directly to the chrome shop in California then they sent the finished wheels to me. It worked out well then I sold mine to someone for the same reason so they wouldn't be without their bike while the chroming process happened. Took about a month.
I think it made a very nice difference and it's easier to clean. Of course it shows dirt easier too.
On the X-bikes and Vision's you could probably get away with just doing the front wheel because the back wheel doesn't show very much.
I agree. On one of my wife's XCT bikes, she has only the front wheel chromed and it looks great. You really can't see the back wheel unless you are down on the ground seriously trying to look at the rear wheel.
