    My rationale for the red seatpost is because everything has a red accent.

    It has:
    3T Funda Pro with red stripe
    3T Stem with red stripe
    KCNC red titanium botls
    KCNC spacers (which needs to be cut)
    KCNC red jockey wheels
    KMC red and black chain
    KCNC seat post

    In close up, the red is consistent amoungts all the pieces and brings the bike together nicely, imo.

    Can't say I disagree but the SLX was like a sledgehammer and the RM is like a lighter sledgehammer with a plush handle.

    I hear you. The Race Master is a definite upgrade. Though the SLX looks the biz. Plus, I like the the look of the streampost seatpost.

    Edit: I meant to say Race Machine.

    There is a place to play into a color theme. Yours doesn't look good. Spacers and seatpost have got to go. Here is one of my bikes with red accent:

    Mean people are like slinkys. They're really not worth much but still are rather entertaining to watch tumble down the stairs.

    Red valve covers are the exact place to play with colours.

    Holy beautiful bike UCI. I can't believe you haven't posted it before or at least I haven;t seen it. Just on a curiosity note. How many bikes do you have currently built up ready to ride? Because you have one hell of a usable stable.

    It is hot but I would not agree necessarily to the hottest in this thread.

    i appreciate the attempt at the red but UCI is correct. the problem is that you have a lot of red accents and then the seat post and spacers are too red. i still think the matching 3t post with a red stripe and black spacers would completely change the look if the bike for the better.
