Nah, now you should get red handle bars and a white seat or visa-versa (Hint: I took inspiration from something in a flower pot).

No, in fact you need a Cobalt wheelset. blue anodized crankset, and that **** from the original Willy Wonka that makes you look like a friggin' Smurf.

Git some blue teef and a blingin blue chain, dawg.

Seriously though, don't make the same assumption that the majority of people on velospace.org make, namely that color coordination means everything has to be the same cheesy alloy-anodized color. Smart contrasts always work best.

I'm kind of stuck with what I got for seat post collar. My frame takes a 28.6 seatpost collar. Also can't do much in regards to the headset cap, I prefer to run a headlock instead of a star fangled nut. Plus the king cap won't fit the bolt that goes through the black profile racing cap. Can't get me to run a star fangled nut. New wheel time is coming up soon though, and I've finally mapped out my build for them.

Wouldn't go colored for hydraulic hose, when I change the hosing, it's going to be stainless steel. Actually, there are no more planned blue parts.

Tyler's (Twenty6) got some nice blue lock-on bar caps (of course these ain't them but you get the idea)



I'm about to get his Boxxer-compatible direct-mount stem. But in red.

I'm doing the red thing on the fixed gear.

Maybe I should build up a bmx bike and have every part be either white or gold.

I almost went gold on the Blindside but would have had to go to the Step-Down pedals (but I love my Mentals too much) and a non-direct-mount Temple stem to help it get there.

I think the reason I'm doing this is to make them unique, for it to stand out. There will not be a single white part on the dmr.
