    +1 on VeloMine.
    I think white or silver might look good.
    Not quite sure about silver though.

    hot bike. invest in a steerer tube cut (:.

    but believe me, pick a color you'll use for a while. antifrost green might seem cool at first but after a month you'll be wanting to upgrade again.

    stay safe. go with silver/ti grey

    rrrrreally, i didn't even consider silver, but now i definitely will. thanks, thanks.

    also, yes about that steer tube....maybe i should start another thread but whatever. so i was about to start cutting it, when i realized that i needed to cut below where the headset screw goes into. so i didn't know what to do, and i was just going to take into my lbs. unless you wizards can enlighten me or link me somewhere useful.

    yea it's a kilo

    I saw two of those all single colour SS/FG bikes yesterday.
    one was yellow and the other was white.

    don't do it, don't match your rim colour to your frame colour!

    It screams "I'm boring!" and "I don't have any colour coordination sense!"
    Food for thought: if you aren't dead by 2050, you and your entire family will be within a few years from starvation. Now that is a cruel gift to leave for your offspring. ;)

    that's a star nut. just hammer it in deeper (but not too deep) and then cut. it's made to go further down without ever coming up.

    i don't necessarily agree with that. i've been riding the same set of pink deep v's for 6 years now. not everyone is going to have the same response to bold colors.

    Eh... If it's high enough, I'd cut first, then hammer it in to exactly the right depth.

    EDIT for clarity: I was trying to avoid it being accidently cut into, or hammered too low. So I would leave it in the peice you are cutting off. Then I'd push it out of that, and install as you normally would into the fork steerer. I prefer to put them in using the top cap screw so it's the perfect depth.

    This is pretty bunk advice. What if where your cutting is below where the starnut sits now?

    Hammer it down, then cut. If you need to tap it down a little further after cutting, do just that.

    pink is actually not that bad of a suggestion. If you don't want to be so bold, go silver. White is always fugly, IMO
