Not the best picture to get an idea of all the shading on the gold but it all matches perfectly. Now just need a frame to hang it on, and no your own frame is not an option.

Plain ti frame would be the best IMO, or maybe carbon.

Deep Evergreen/forest green, Deep wine red and black are also good frame colors for gold bits.

I do agree that too much gold can be tacky, too much of anything really. You all have good taste if you suggested a Ti frame, gold goes great with Ti, IMHO. Problem is most of the Ti frames are top pull and my front derail is a bottom pull. So a cool steel frame paired with the gold kit and all black components seems like the move.

Nice!

I have an identical set of levers (with the original stickers as per yours).

Yours are the only other set I have seen.

There have been several using gold elements (ie. the rasta sets) but never a fully gold set...

(this is where hundreds of people post up pics of theirs to prove me wrong...)

Cheers,
BB.

p.s. gold also works well on red anodized frames imo...

p.p.s. I think gold Ringle Ti-Stix would complete the set better than the Salsa Flip-Offs...
