I feel you need to go all Silver or all black with the components. Think the Black looks better, but needs Black hubs/spokes/rims headset chainwheel, bottle cage etc the second is too much of a mix. The Blue Neo chainstay guard looks horrendous, needs to be black or just do the stay with clear heli tape.

Contrast always looks the best IMHO i.e dark frame silver or white components, pale frame, black parts. But the bright red of your frame is neither pale or dark! So ur frame needs a re spray :twisted:
