And... some more assembly pics...

Need some advise.... What colour should the decals be?

What about the fork?? I was thinking of painting it in it's original pink colour (as seen on the original steer tube above before it was cut off)...

paint the fork a darker blue, closer to the RF cranks. or maybe even closer to a black/blue. NOT pink/magenta. :P

decals… blue with black shadow, or black with blue shadow. ;)

That was my original plan (I even have a silver Syncros stem) but I decided to go all out on the ringle so the ringle stem was a must =)

i think you should consider a black bar, as the XT STI looks out of place (of course may change pending grips). That way you pull some of the black from the seat post and chainring forward to balance the build.

True... Thx! The seat post will probably be silver though (gonna strip off the black) and the chainrings are going to be replaced with silver or grey ones... Still debating but I would like to try and eliminate as much black as possible...

Finally made some decisions...

- silver Syncros bar
- m970 shifters (so the silver will match)
- m960 front and rear mechs
- blackspire rings for crank
- not pictured but I got an all silver origin8 30.4 seat post to match

I will be repainting the fork to match the crank arms in the spring
