    black ss dawes deadeye 29er... black or honey b17?

    OK, so I'm going to get a brooks b17 standard saddle for a black dawes deadeye ss 29er (see below), but am torn between honey and black. I think the black would look nice and incognito, but the honey would be a nice accent as well... what do you think?

    although continuing with the all black theme would be cool too, but i kinda like the highlight

    I say black. Honey would look out of place without some brown (and preferably chrome) other places on the bike.

    Oh, and if you aren't planning to already, get one of these. Trust me.

    I just bought a Brooks Team Pro in honey for my new Kilo WT, which is red. I think the honey color adds a lot of class to any bike and just plain screams leather.

    exactly... but something that screams leather is also screaming "steal me" which is one of the few things causing doubt in my mind about the honey

    Honey only on a silver seatpost. Honey on black seatpost looks weird.

    Honey only if you're adding other non-black accents.

    Otherwise it would stick out like the sorest of thumbs.
