Ok yeh white industries with red nipples and red zmax...


The Z-maxs will be a but much for this frame. I'd look for some team control and team masters w/ that red pin strip.

Yeh theyre quite nice. Very stealthy there ;)

stealthy beats pimpy on a ti frame IMHO. The red cables look good on the Salsa but would look poncy on the RM. A ti-bolt should be a masculine looking bike, not a pretty bike.

Got a feeling the red cables were stock aswell - I seem to recall remembering a lot of Ti bolts with red cables too...

Its true you don't want it to look like a game show set. W/ syncros stuff i think you need to stay from bright bits.

yeah I wouldn't put the Z-maxs on a bike this nice, even if they were part of the original spec.

Original spec was Wolber AT400 polished rims, DT spokes, red nipples and Z-Max WCS 1.9's.

The picture I've got funnily enough has got grey cable outers but I've seen red before.
