i am trying to decide what finishing kit for one of the fleet.
struggling with the options
i like things to match and in this case i want silver parts which are annoyingly rare these days but also if possible i want all 3 items to be the same brand.
so i have been thinking about these options:-
1, hope, stem and post , would have to be black cos the post is black only but what bar?
2, u.s.e, bar stem and post, but stem is grey black only and the sumo post is available in black/silver or titanium
3, thomson, stem and post both available in silver but what bar?
4, easton, handlebars are silver alloy or carbon, stems are black, posts are black or carbon
so apart from the obvious that some of the above don't meet the silver criteria the other issue is that if i use for example the thomson option what brand bar should i use? for example if i used an easton bar then i feel i should be using an easton stem and post.
i am leaning mostly towards Thomson, good quality, not horrendous money, strong and reliable. so it's mainly the bar choice here if i went down this option.
so does anyone have a suggestion for a bar brand available in silver (riser) that doesn't have a matching stem so it wouldn't be out of place in my little OCD world?! or another brand altogether that does all 3 items in silver? would also be nice if they are 25.4 not 31.8 as they'll be going on a steel frame not a fat alloy frame.
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
