Gold anodised with 3dv accent parts and polished xt components does appeal!

Red and silver is def a good look. For some reason I was always keen on the blue one above but I had the red drop outs and couldnt find anywhere to anodise such a small order.

I also like Ivan Marchant's race bike with purple decals and accents. He had m900 mechs, lx cranks, xt brakes and shifters, hope wheels with smoke and dart tyres, itm ti stem, x-lite bars, use post, shocktech forks (replaced by PACE quite quickly I believe!)

So you're blue Dukes red might have to think about purple as per Marchants bike, gonna be a pain collecting that colour I think as I've never seen purple xlite bars! (I've got red & blue)!
