    Need advise on components to get for my new frame

    I just bought this off of another member here. I was thinking of getting a DeBernardi but this frame came up and for about the same price it seemed like a nobrainer. I'm not an NJS purist and this will be used mostly on the streets so while I know it will boil down to taste more then anything, what do people recommend to get as far as cranks, rims and hubs. Color advise would be nice too for the few of you that still like colored rims. My current bike has low end suginos and inexpensive fixed wheelset from Nashbar. I might just transfer them to this frame, but part of my wants to do the frame justice and get some nicer stuff since I have some extra dough this month. Also the spacing is 110 and I don't know what hubs will work.

    phil hubs w/ the 110 axle will work, pricy, but they'll last forever

    Profile BMX hubs with a loc-tited cog (just file open the dropouts a little wider for the thicker axle.) laced to mirrored deep-v's. Some shiny-ass profile cranks and a spider chainring... riser bars, crank bros. 50-50 platform pedals.... That thing will be sweeeet.

    You have to be consistant with a paint that bright. Pretty color and you can eff it up if you put anything on it that competes. I agree. Go shiny wherever you can including rims cranks bars post stem etc. Black saddle black tires. You're in to win. Classic.
