Anyone have this combo? I'm considering it and interested in how it would look.

"Brown can be paired with black when the individual items are in harmony and balance with each other and then each color plays off the other as an accent, rather than as a coordinated set."

I know a guy that did this. It looks like a black bike with brown rims.

"The motion of the brown rims will draw in the eye, and create nice transition to the blackness of the frame. However under no circumstance should black rims be installed on a black bike--this would most certainly have a disasterous outcome"

I knew a guy that did this. A couple of weeks later he got thrown in jail for a parole violation. So if you're on parole, I'd suggest against it.

Not mine by the way. It's Stephen from Brooklyn/Amherst's. I don't know if he has it anymore, but it's one of the most unique Pista's ever.

Unique in what way? It looks like an other bike. Two wheels, saddle, handlebars. Some pedals.

I'm thinking down the road I may go with brown on my green IRO group buy. That is if there's any green paint left by the time I have to money to spend on deep Vs.

I think brown on black looks nice.

I was gonna post a pic of stephens bike when i saw the thread title but alas, I was beaten. Bike isnt built up anymore so there is less black/brown deep V competition for you Southernwayfare.
