Ano is alright, but I really like seeing colored parts (grips, seats, cable housings, brake pads, tires, fenders, pedal clips, and bottle cages) when done tastefully to complement decals or a paint job.
Color coordination is big in the fixed gear world of cycling, and for decades there's been a similar trend in the automotive world in regards to Hot Rods and Custom cars (and, more recently, neon and anodized bling in the street racer category), so why not in the retro mtb world?
In 1909, Henry Ford said you could have a Model T in any color you liked, as long as it was black.......Bo-ring! Now, over 100 years later, we really can have stuff in any color we like. so why not use it? BOTM submissions aren't done in black & white, are they?
With that in mind, I think it makes sense to post a link to this thread:
BITD I used to listen to this album so many times that I think I wore thru the vinyl.....................um, "albums" were things that were recorded on vinyl discs that...........um, you played them on a "turntable" that was a machine that.............oh, nevermind.
