    Nimble 9 build advice needed

    Just got my 2013 sparkle orange N9 frame.

    I'm thinking about some build options
    here are the stuff i already have-

    1) fork- RS revelation 120. it is black with white\orange labels.
    the same fork that is OEM on 2013 honzo:

    2) wheel-set- can be one of this two:

    or :

    MacMahone | 99

    (the same set-different colors)

    i can't get any other wheel-set nor fork, so assuming that-
    1) what wheel color should i get?
    2) handlebar- i thought putting my RF orange atlas combined with black stem- any other ideas? (i thought going with some blue- but i can't change the wheel colors)
    3) saddle colors- black? white? orange?

    My personal choice (purely aesthetic) would be the black wheels with white stem, orange bars, white saddle. White saddles get dirty really fast though, so you may want to go black here. That keeps your main color scheme as black and orange, with some flashes of white accent.

    If i will go with the white stem and the orange bar, should the grips be black or white?

    Just throwing this out there...Most white spokes are painted, so they are much heavier than the standard spoke. If that doesn't matter to you, then no worries. If weight is a consideration, I would look for different wheels without white spokes.

    Also, by the look of the wheels you posted, they don't look like they will work with your RS Revelation unless they have through-axle options. Hope that helps.
