    Hmm. We've been trying to "simplify" for the past year or two, so the general philosophy is probably n-a couple. I'm quite happy with my regular riders and don't have any desire whatsoever to replace...

    I've had very high success rate matching nail polish to frame colors, especially the metallics. For whatever reason, blues seem to be the toughest to match acceptably. The local Walgreens has gotten...
