DG Dream Bike, all in white

With bike cash burning in my pocket I encountered these all white components. I am considering creating a DG special.





I'm really tempted to create a modern full carbon ride. This one looks nice.

I'm not sure that I'd be able to find an all white bike in St Louis this morning. There's this cold white stuff all over everything.

The Ximo is the frame I bought yesterday.............err...ummm.....my wife bought yesterday for my birthday. I think............err.

I have plans to make a reasonably high tech flat bar road bike around it. Sette makes good products in that price range that most of us can afford.

I'm meditating (or is it medicating?) as we speak. Thanks for the reminder.

Can't see the fascination about white bikes. I'd lose it with all the snow and frost that seems to be about.

Well, the Primo carbon has the (Jersey?) cow black and white thing going but the Ximo just has the modest Sette name.

I'm thinking of the white stem with black drop bars to complement the Primo frame although I have a black stem on hand and could order white bars and black carbon look tape. I also have a spare set of Black LOOK pedals.

If you lean a white bike against a white garage door, all you would be able to see are 2 black circles, right.
