I'm building up a silver anodized 5 " trail bike that will be around 23.5 lbs and I have allways built my race bikes up very simple Black hubs black seat posts, headsets etc . My question is what to much ? I'm thinking about adding a Blue headset ,stem and maybe skewers and ( tune products) they also have colored seat post what to much ?maybe red skewer ends to offset the blue? ??

Blue Chris King hubs with a Blue Chris King headset. everything else black.
I already have dt Hugi 240 hubs that are black with the red inserts , I'm going with BLUE HEADSET SILVER STEM AND I BLACK CARBON POST, MAYBE A SET OF COLORED SKEWERS?

That sound's like how mine is going to be built. I am waiting on the frame though.

You can actually get Silver/Black stickers direct from DT for your hubs... They look really really nice (if you don't have your wheels already built.. could be a PITA to install the stickers with the spokes in the way).

Get yourself a coloured seatpost collar.. hope makes some nice ones (although not very light).
