    Should I paint the fork?

    I'm having a hell of a time trying to figure out if I should have my fork painted. I'm having a custom frame and fork built by Igleheart. The frame is going to be dark red with all the components black (wheels, seat, stem, pedals and so on.) I think it's going to look killer. But I can't decide what will look better, the fork painted the frame color or just black to match all the components. What do all of you think?

    I may be a retro-grouch, but it seems to me that the fork should be the color of the frame.
