I've also got an opinion question for you all: I'd like to add a little color to the bike, but am not sure what to go with. The frame is silver with chrome accents and black lettering. Do you folks think a different color (other than black) would look good for the bar tape, seat accents, and cable housing? If it had any other color anywhere on the frame I could match it would be easy, but the color scheme on the bike is relatively drab.
I always think red accents grey/silver frames nicely.

Gumwall tires and brake hoods can help break things up too.
