I'm picking up distress signals from too much purple ano... Don't go overboard man.

I'm thinking of taking a few pieces off of my ARC, it's a bit too much for me.

I'm surrounded by turquoise. 3DV makes a nice change.

The 3DV excess won't be to everyone's tastes but I figured in for a penny, in for a pound :lol:

Ooh I don't know - if it works with turq - it works with 3DV :lol:

I think Mr Ship's ARC is one of my favourtite ever builds, and it just screams out 1994 to me...

strictly speaking they are called Grafton shifter perches/pods - moonheads are the Grafton copies that came later. I have some moonheads I think.

That is a nice one. However, I think the manitou crown and brace are a bit too much and I think that all blue levers and shifter perches on a blue bar are also overkill...

I have all of that stuff for an upcoming ARC build and am unsure of how to proceed with them. I think on my personal ARC I'm going t ogo back to a black post, turquoise PCd stem with a black bar and keep the 3DV graftons and 3DV Ringle wheels.

Possibly yes. I've saved a silver Hyperlite just in case...
