argghhh, don't ya hate it wehn you have a choice...... :twisted:

Bike is Ti grey with white highlights plus red alloy bits so do I choose non contrasting colour BB - silver/grey, or black or blingy red ano? Chainset is black with grey rings.

... and a side question, is there really benefit of fittinig a ceramic bearing BB, I mean, I can't really imagine I am going to feel less friction pedalling ....?? :?:

Black or silver.

If you've got colour elsewhere, I'd keep it simple.

this is what I got in the end.

a little bit of read at each corner is not too over the top ... and anyways, it is hidden by the cranks.
