I'd get rid of those uglyass Omnomnoms and put on a set of all red Andels.
*runs and hides*
Anodize that fork purple.
@ Scrod - I'm thinking of changing out the bars for some bullhorns, but I'm waiting on a new stem (also black). If I stick with risers, I have a spare Tektro lever lying around with a small clamp diameter that should fit right by the grip. I never got around to putting them on because I need to re-cut a longer cable/housing.
@ illdthedj - I would switch the tires, but the fork can't fit anything bigger than 23c. Maybe a 25c, but I was getting some rubbing when I tried it earlier. If I switch out for the bullhorns mentioned above, the cockpit will be all black.
@ TT - Nope. Hahaha.
@ Blue - I bought the frame with the painted fork. I would have much preferred if the previous owner hadn't spraybombed the fork and left it in raw carbon, or even black. Does anyone know how to remove the paint without damaging the fork?
that front tire is ugly. and colored risers always lose.
I don't like the fork, but I like literally every single other thing about it.
please burn my bike

Flame away guys....
cheezy watermark on photo as well. worried someone will use a photo of your bike as their own?
that blue leader is sharp. Some silver spokes and hubs would be best though.
looks kinda saggy to me. sheldon brown said "It should be tight as it can be without binding". and if that is close to binding the chainring needs to be adjusted. but hey whatever
what frame is on that all-black build? mercier kilo?
