You feel colour would be too much? Lots of other parts will be anodised those colours. What do you think to coloured crank bolts?


yes it would be colour over kill. I think it would spoil the lovely frame. Perhaps i'm being boring?

No I've been thinking about your suggestion and have been looking at orange crank bolt dust covers and maybe some coloured chainring bolts but I think you are right about colour overkill.

Just got the pedals. I know they are new but I couldn't resist the orange springs :D

I thought the black endcaps and spindles spoilt the overall looks so purchased some Ti axles and alloy endcaps

Much Better :D

Just playing about with colour combinations on the crankset...Dark blue bolts or Turquoise Blue bolts? Bearing in mind the colour of the frame and the decals will be dark blue. Happy with the centre cap colour though.
