New schwag for the 29er *pics*

With all the attention my new road bike project was getting my mountain bike started to get a little jealous... So I thought I'd do something nice for it so it wouldn't feel neglected...

It got some new bling too....



New King headset and Thomson X4 Stem









New Salsa Seatpost collar



and Salsa Skewers



and new grips (Lizardskins Northshore) with red ODI Lock-jaws

I'm also thinking about a flat-bar to lower my stance on the bike a bit too...to get a little more aggressive with it...

any recomendations in that area?

I thought my scheme was unique, your accents are almost identical to my KONA Kula Primo.
Red CK headset,Silver Thomson X4, Red titanium skewers, but I have the silver thomson seatpost, with a silver Salsa QR clamp (It should be red). I do have a red metal flake Serfas ARC Kevlar seat though
My frame is a dark gray with a dark bluish/gray Fox F80.
I have XTR hubs and it is very difficult resisting some of those sweet red CK centerlocks (I won't buy them..I won't buy them.. )
I was looking at some red OURY grips and red jockey wheels too.

thomson x4

I bought a thomson X4, but with my bike the steerer tube is bare steel - and you can see it through the spaces in the clamp. Was your steerer already black, or did you have to paint it? (Or is it annodized or something?)
