    I'm Mr. Monochrome, but I voted blue. Maybe get something else blue, something subtle like chain tensioners... just to show you got it going on.

    I know it doesn't really show in the pics, but the tires are blue too.

    and the chain

    actually going back for another look you can see the tires - you'd prolly wanna match the blue to the tires...two clashing blues might look bad.

    assuming the frame is actually white and not off white / robins egg blue like it kinda looks then I'd say blue.

    That might ,look nice - the blue/white.

    I'd go black second, white last.

    I've seen better patterns, that's just a pic I grabbed quickly. I'm thinking blue/black for my blue LHT (although almost all the rest of it is chrome-y, where it's not covered in grease and roadgrit anyway)

    yes. I have em on my bike. Specialized makes really nice blue cages - light and they should match.

    I replied in your other thread but here goes again...Those bars (drop) look really large so be careful of whatever color you pick otherwise the bars themselves will dwarf the rest of the rig (visually that is).

    I would not do anything that brought any more attention to the bars, instead go subtle, probably black. Unless you're going for an all bars bike look of course.

    If you had much shallower bars (120-130m or so) I'd say go blue to accent the wheels. But if you're not careful you're going to have a set of handlebars with a couple of wheels attached to them.

    Chris
