I'm leaning towards the CNC'd brace. Have some Grafton levers to go on it and one the hunt for some cooks cranks, plan B is black XT, but definitely black/silver parts, frame is loud enough :shock:

Go with the green. If you put on the black then black cantis it will just be a visual mess. The green will blend into the fork/frame and the cantis will stand out instead of having a visual fight with the overly fussy cnc'd brace.

Go big and bold I'd say.

I still remember DrS's amazing green and red Fat. That was a serious paint job, almost makes me wonder if that frame has gone to the states and back.

Trial fitted the different braces last night and decision was made for me really, the nice CNC one is far too tight for the forks now they have been painted, would mean sanding back paint on the fork to make it fit and I can't bring myself to do that. The other factor is that it fits a set of Specialized FS forks I have with no brace, so thats going to help finish another project off.

The CNC brace just has that race bred look. I'd Go with that

Good predicament to have!

BTW 'FAT' parcel, I see what you did there...
