So to get back on track and away from "This way the knobs can deliver" a few more pics.

Firstly my crankset choice

And a bit of customisation of some white SPD pedals

Got to be careful though that I don't overdo it with the Martini branding or it could end up looking like this!!

And we don't want that now do we :shock:

An almost perfect example of how just the slight tweak in the wrong direction can make a scheme just go so flat, as in those wheels may have been a good idea but breaking up the Martini colours in a way that they were never used just distracts from the overall look….. and that red on the shock doesn’t help….
