Matching stuff can look damn awful I reckon. :?

That Stars and stripes Trimble just needs some nice silver cnc'c stuff and no more.

Give it a black simple fork and black saddle and black tyres. The frame is so overpowereing it will look naff with loads of trinkets plopped all over it.

The RULES:

- Plain frame - fun colourful/themed components

- Wild zany coloured frame - black or silver components

It does look like it, yes! I'm voting with the majority on this one! I think it would look totally OTT. Plus Tony would probably kill me if I put anything on it that had been anywhere near a Cannondale (no offence intended to any owners on here BTW). You never were their biggest fan were you mate??

I think the frame has enough bling factor already. It really doesn't need any more pimping up!

:P
