Have you tried the ergo grips? You get them with little bar ends that would work well with Luvvies.

Nice orange.

Mostly got black parts on my modern, orange, steel frame, with the odd silver bit.

This is the kinda thing, I have stubbies on a fleegle bar and it offers a fair bit of leverage.

I'm having a nice custom built steel frame made for me. I have black wheels with black spokes already. Frame colour will be a single colour (possibly orange).

Cranks will be silver (Middleburn).

So, should I have silver stem and seat post or black stem and seatpost to go with the ensemble?


Silver!!

I went all black on my modern bike and regret it, silver is just a bit more interesting

must admit - leaning towards the silver look... I don't like too much black I think
