It looks immaculate! You clearly like purple hehe!

I'd go for matching tyres (both black on that), I'd ditch the spins (That's a personal thing) and I'd put a black seatpost in it.

I'd also thing about black rings or black cranks. I guess what I'm doing is toning it down - which clearly wasn't the objective. I'd be interested to see how it looks though if you have those parts available to do a comparison.

Truly a homage to 3DV!


Heres a few of it with the LX black cranks, stem, bars etc I do like the Black ...but IMHO the Lx finish & quality just doesn't do it justice I'd like to put some CBRcranks in black on it . 8)

I'd keep the LX. Kooka makes a fine set of bookends.
