OCD in bike build choice is a frustrating mental condition and should not be mocked! :lol:

i like things to match because the overall package then looks nicer, matching logos and finishes etc, i hate seeing too many miss-matched items, it looks poo!

if you take my 07 clockwork for an example, it's hope hubs/brakes but with raceface bar/post/stem/chainset so to me there is a sort of theme.

tyres must also be matching, not necessarily a matching pair but matching brand. but that's another story! :oops:

Agree with jonnyboy.

Stuff has to match or it will be forever unfinished unless there is a theme going on.

I like Easton stuff, never let me down. The alloy EA70 range is lighter and stronger than their cheapest carbon stuff.

Easton OCD gone a bit too far
