I feel terrible for saying but I just don't like it.

I cannot put my finger on exactly what it is about the build - I think its wheels, saddle and post :?

Maybe more black components as to not detract from the frame?

Or black with orange and blue graphics?

The wheels would look great with CK mango and black rims + spokes

Blue, the same as the logo, forks would look triffic!
It's a beautiful colour, but matched by virtually no known bike components.
