Black Kilo TT - design ideas

Hey guys,

I have a black kilo tt and I'm thinking about customizing it a little bit. I really like the stock look at the moment, but wanted to add some color (handlebar grips, seat, etc). Has anyone seen a couple of good lookin' black + color kilo bikes? Just trying to gather some inspiration.

I've checked out places like PedalRoom... not much on the black, but lots of green/purple bikes.

Thanks.

I always found black frame with dark red tape and seat looks good.

I like it, and not because I own a couple of mini-velos.

What size frame is it?

Thanks! It's a blast to ride. It's a 63cm.

This is the perfect time for me to advertise my pedalroom, but I won't do that.
