    Help with color scheme

    Hey guys, sorry to start a new thread. But I've kinda hit a wall. I having been dropping a little money into my conversion as of late. Trying to get a uniform color scheme together. I slapped a red crankset and aa blue chain on there that looks sweet. I'm moving to a hillier area for a while, and plan to run a brake. Things like stem and seatpost, what color should they be? Pedals clips and straps all that. Saddle.

    black stem yeah, I was thinking of using one of those threadless-quill adaptors, and putting an open faced stem on there. The pegs are mainly there to deter rear wheel theft, but fun for getting a second person around sometimes.

    I want you to be trolling, but I don't think you are.

    Your left Oury is crooked. You should fix that if you're so concerned about aesthetics.

    how do you stop? I see clips, but no straps. Get them asap if you want to ride brakeless.

    Pegs?
    Wow
    Do you stand on them and then drag your butt on the tire to slow down?
