i can't picture it in my head, but i'd like to build up the following frame with white components:



i was thinking white rims, fork, cables and seat. do you guys think it would look ok? would a white fork look out of place?

if anyone has any other suggestions, i'd take them into consideration. maybe brown?

It would would look like Micheal Jackson and Kermit the Frog had a love child.

White components are going out of style.

Fluro orange will make a comeback.

careful

Start with a white rear shock!!
Seriously-I wouldn't go beyond white wheels, maybe a white fork. Otherwise it will look like a Walmart special. Too coordinated.

brown would be a sweet accent color.

check out the specialized site for 08, they have some good looking brown lockon grips.

Its your bike, you have to like it, you have to ride it. Whats "in style" or "out of style" is for sheep, not men or women.

hopefully never. flat black looks good on any bike component. plus you don't have to keep it shiny!
and softtailteamrider, that nomad looks awesome. I can see why bombardier on singletracks loves his. if only I had the money to get one to build up...
