Grips, chain, tires, etc.
My frame is a very deep blue, very similar to the Park tools color. My build will consist of polished DP 18's, polished risers, silver and polished Eighthinch crank set, silver Promax seat post, etc. I am after a very clean and nostalgic look that still gets attention and is fairly bright. I was to run the Dia-Compe Gran Compe SS in brown because it is a nearly exact match to my honey Brooks saddle. Has anyone had any experience with these tires? They are a little pricey but look amazing with that saddle. My second question is about grips. I want to run something as close to the honey color as possible. I know Oury makes a brown grip but its not that close of a match to what I am after, is it? Does anyone know of a similar grip that comes in the honey color? Thirdly, let's talk chains. I am after something polished maybe, but I dont want it to be too bling-bling. Maybe a silver chain but I don't want to spend a lot of money as I will only be riding a few miles a day on this bike. I will be running a 1/8 drive chain by the way. Sorry for all the questions but I need answers! Thanks guys.
