Getting there.
Waiting on XTR cranks and hopefully a new Seatpost.
Was thinking of a White Saddle, Turbo, Flite, but may just keep the Blue Flite.
Also found white/cream colored tires but..........

I wouldn't be opposed to white/cream tires. It would fit this ride.

Another thing that is cool about this paint is that when you turn off the lights, "Klein" and "Attitude" and "Klein" on the fork legs GLOW in the Dark!
The phosphorescent paint they used has lost most of the glow but it is still pretty cool to see. That's why I put the Qury "glow in the dark" grips on.:)

Nice Klein!
A white Turbo/Flite would suit if you were going for White/Cream tyres, but would think you would need some white grips :D

3 choices.
I like the cream tires but what to do about Seat and grips.
Not liking the black post.

In my completely uneducated opinion...
Seat and grips should ideally match colour.
Also the stem, post and cranks should be of similar colour

Black flite I reckon, post looks fine.
