|REALLY important stuff: Black or Silver rings?||ekdave|
Dec 30, 2003 7:10 AM
|So I need new rings. Have a black frame, mostly black wheels, black seat post, stem, etc. Have dura-ace cranks and regular "sorta dark silver" Dura-ace rings.
Im getting new TA rings (good $)
So do I get black or silver?
Do I stick with the all-black bike theme, or put in more silver to offset the "too much black" bike?
and yes, I know its a silly question. But really, if it were your bike, youd give it some thought too right?

|My mother had an black Austro Daimler (Vent Noir) with black rings that were countersunk drilled on about 1/4" centers all the way around the rings. Sort of a "silver rivets on black" effect that was quite striking. Add in some gold pin striping, gold anodized rims, etc. and you get the picture.|

|Remember the argument that clear urethane wheels were "faster"? Did a google search and this popped up--which actually affirmed that argument. Kind of cool.
|yep, still ride a bit nowadays||climbo|

|makes sense to me, coloured wheels always used to wear out too fast, now I have plain white all the time. Lots of design in these little things now with cores and dual durometers etc.|

|Yup. And my old halfpipe behind my mothers house still stands and I still ride it on my old Santa Cruz Time released insanity deck when I visit.|

|Go with silver. I have a black bike and upgraded my rims (not because they weren't silver!) and it really "brightened" it up, made it look sleeker and less like a "Road Warrior" bike.
And if it makes me ride more because it catches my attention a little better, hey, that can't be a bad fringe benefit!
NOW....next year's big investment -- silver bottle cages!
|But of course! I already did the silver cages - still not there||ekdave|

|... silver carbon posts???||Akirasho|

|Never seen one in the flesh... and technically, everyone's calling it White Carbon but...
Be the bike.

|Dura Ace-Silver Record-Black Not a silly question||Dave Hickey|
Dec 30, 2003 9:14 AM
|Nothing wrong with a little style. With Dura Ace, I'd go silver because the rest of the components are silver. If you were using 2004 Record, I'd go with black.|
|Good point.....but I have black Mavic Brakes. yikes!||ekdave|

|Im all messed up.
Heres the bike:
Luckily I found Grey Dura-ace housing to offset the "too much black" look.
|I agree with Dave.||KG 361|

|Get the silever D/A. It will break things up a bit. If you had black cranks, then I'd go with black. Although, I may be a bit biased.....|| |
