i would throw the white accents myself. nothing wrong with the black but... hell, if you're repainting the bike then go for something rad! bright blue metallic!

Looking good Frank. I think the black and blue scheme looks good and like you said, would be even better with a black post. Having said that, your original plan for the white and blue scheme would work well too, and be a little different.

*notice that your seatpost extension is almost exactly the same as mine :wink:

Bike looks awesome! I can never find colored RF bars. Any chance on selling the Catalyst?

yeah, sourcing RF bars isn't easy. :? hit me up with an offer on the Catalyst via PM if you're serious. ;)

yeah i think i'll be moving forward with the white/blue scheme repaint. all my other bikes are fairly tame and subdued. think this one should be bold and loud. :D

levers arrived today… niiice! 8) they're a good match in colour with the CT canti brakes and the Pulstar hubs.

if i didn't have to repaint the frame/fork, i'd install the black Syncros seatpost i have and either white or black grips and be done. :|

nope, shutter still has his for his own "blue" project. so that's where he got his from. i got mine from someone in the US. had it and the other RF bits for some time now. just couldn't decide on an appropriate project to hang it all on till now.
