Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

I don't like the gold. It feels overpowering. How about black hubs and silver spokes or all black with gold nipples?

If the above are the two options (without getting in to spokes/nipples variations), I'd go with the gold.

I did try the pewter, but I saw a pewter Chris king hub in person and it has a very small tint of purple to it which i didn't like.

Yeah, I think with everything else being black or white having gold hubs really draws your focus to them. Probably going black. thanks for the help fellas. I got what I needed. Dont want to derail this anymore than I have. thanks guys.

Chain needs to be on the big ring. But it's Campy so it's warm.

+1. Need to do some fine tuning to the Bianchi I recently picked up, not going to Hot or Not it until it is ready.
