Black all the way.

That being said, I have a modern black bike, and am not entirely happy with the combination of a flat (or is it matte?) black frame and gloss black forks.
If it weren't for the difficult decal work, I'd have had it powdercoated gloss black already.

So make sure the frame and fork are the same kind of black. If yours is flat/matte too, you might want to check out my pictures first and decide for yourself.

Getting the frame resprayed a Gloss Black...I'll have the forks in my possession first so can get a match. Thanks for the heads up on that! Highlights I'm kind of thinking, Seat Clamp, Headset, if I go Black hubs, Rotors, or maybe too much so maybe Skewers, Grip Locking ends & Caps. That'll be it, I can't think of anything else. Like understated & I saw the BOTM Santana Moda in Black & Silver...Nice!
