    What Color Cages

    Most of you have seen the BMC pics, so as to not offend the OCP police. What color bottle cages, black or red, I can't decide. Please note that I only like the cheap alum wire cages. Also, I probably need new pedals as the old gray ones aren't hacking it. I'm thinking Crank Bros Quattro in black.

    Black is the only reasonable choice.

    That Sram crankset is sure a pretty one. How about a red cage on the black and a black cage on the red.

    That I like. Picks up the colors and will definitly be a one of a kind at the next group ride. Go for it. You could carry out the theme with some white/black bar tape.

    I had no idea it was a girls bike!

    I vote red and black, to match the tubes they are mounted on.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    The problem with the gene pool is that there is no lifeguard and the shallow end is much too large

    With a bike that fast why do you need cages? When you have a bike that fast, doesn't it come with other riders who shuttle back to the team car to get water?
    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.

    Do like I did, take it by the shop and hold up different colors to see which ones you like best.

    One more vote for black--either carbon fiber or alum.-but with a bike that nice, I'd go for carbon cages!! And black pedals.

    The problem with matching colors is, if they aren't a perfect match, it looks like a kindergartener picked it.

    Wait a minute! Are you that 12 year old who's still in 3rd grade? If so, get the red.
