    Which way would you go here with the MuP8

    Swapped my black rims from my Speed P8 because I put a silver generator hub on it and wanted it to match.

    I gooned up the handlebar so bought a Ritchey replacement and it came in black. So I also have a black seat tube from the P8 (it has a thudbuster now) and now I've ordered a headset and stem in black from ThorUSA.

    I think I'm going to go ahead and black trim it out. Also I just put a trigger shifter on the bike as well.

    I think it would look sharp in black and white. Don't forget the rack. And you might can swap the black chain guard from the Speed P8.
