The bling is tricky with these. It's tough to find the right balance and not make it look like everyone else's. You've got some fun bits there though!!!

Yea, the 3DV isn't considered only hanging with her siblings. I'm kinda liking the all black option tonight. The RSR are just too thin for me though.

I would like to see the black bars, might be a bit too much black though, maybe some clear grips to break it up a bit? the silver bars would work too :) i could take the black bars off your hands, should make the choice easier :)

Thanks all. I think I'm going to try all black and see how that turns out. I strung up the cranks and rings last night and used some SRP bolts with NOS SG-X rings and like the look pretty well.

Still need to order spokes, get the wheels built and install the new decals but no rush on that. Lots of headway made this weekend. Have a great Sunday!

Re:

For the project, two new wheels were needed so I used a previously unlaced, silver Ringle Super Duper 8 rear & a Super Bubba front, M231 CDs (thanks Adrian...you do rock) laced with silver Sapim CX-Rays and black 14mm black, Sapim nips. Gil punched out some fresh new decals to liven up the rims so I'm really pleased with the wheels. The bladed spokes should work well with the massive tubes on this bike. Think Ringle/HED/Yeti Ti Stix.

Finishing up some last minute polishing and new ring replacement.

Also got a few jewels back from ano last week. Grafton needed some parts anodized so he let me know and I had these previously black DKG braces and another M3 brace done while awaiting new elastomers.

I plan to apply decals this week so I should have this one in the bag by next weekend. It's been fun but like most retro builds these day, painfully slow running down all the parts.
