So I finally got around to building this up.
Full XTR M900 except for the Syncros Ti post and (forgot the brand) skewer set.
I originally had the White WTB tires and White Flite, then Black Onza Honchos and now Black Flite and Black Onza Honchos.
I do have a line on Klein DG grips so.......
What do you all think?
I am kinda liking the simplicity of the black scheme.

White = too much

Correction, black housing, black tires, black grips, white flite is ok.

I agree, Black. It makes the bike look more purposeful and brings out the red better. 8)

Black, clear or black grips preferred, I think the white cables just about work, overall very nice Lawrence.

Because I know some of you will notice and ask "what is with the "coleman" on the top tube"?
Story goes, from the son of the original owner, that his dad was a Dr. in Olympia, Washington(30 min north of Chehalis) and had treated a Klein employee and as thanks, this said employee gave the frameset to his dad.
He put the Dr's last name in marker on the top tube then clear coated it.
It kinda stinks. Thinking of changing my last name to make it match but........
I need to figure out how to cover it up.

Once I get the Klein grips on it will be complete.
I think the White housing looks nice as it really brings out the White logos.
