Wheel spokes

So I bought my C50 almost a month ago and it was very clean but I want to get it immaculate. However since the spokes on the wheels are from 2008 they're not shiny new chrome but the rim is. Is there a way to shine the spokes so they look cleaner? Any product recommendations or ideas would be great, thanks!!!

No. They are not polished or chromed, so any effort to ean them up will only result in another dull finish. If you want bright and shiny, you have to pull the wheel unlace the spokes and have them plated.

As if some things in life weren't hard enough, I can't imagine trying to keep chrome spokes on a bike polished and shiny.

Wheels from a C50C would look great.
