Thanks for the ideas everyone :)

Well it looks to me like its gonna be a syncros after all!

I wouldn't have gotten the bike had it not been for Jeff & James.
Cheers!

Phew I was starting to have doubts!
A Syncros would go well but then I think you would have to change the bar/stem to black. Then it might be too much......black. Then again the all black would highlight the splash colors on the frame.


What am I doing???? I got a job and a family......and my own bike problems.

My thoughts:

Silver seatpost.

Matches the fork crown etc.

Go for something different - American Classic would be nice.

Nice paintwork BTW. Mint exampe too!

Either XTR post with that stem or the black Syncros with a black stem.

I agree about the crank bolts - that frame is too good, nothing should compete with it for visual attention.

Post needs to match stem, but I feel red would look good as it would match in with the red in the frame. Another alternative would be Gold to pick out the gold in the frame also?
