    What type of valve covers should I run on my Canyon DirtJunkie?

    I have it set up for Presta in front and Schraeder in the rear. I like the looks of a shiny black die for the front, but am undecided what to put on the rear wheel. Should I worry about whether or not it will complement the die, or, should I throw caution to the wind and go with something totally different?

    Also concerned about weight. If I get something heavier for the rear will it throw the balance off and cause the front to shimmy?

    Btw, it's a 2003 DirtJunkie model, with Sram spokes and a WTB chain.

    Here's a similar black die to mine. (I only have one, not two. I don't know where the other one is)

    Those would be my choice. Except only one in the back and leave the front naked for weight distribution. Easier to ride wheelies with.

    But if I had a die on the front and a skull on the back, I could jam to Rush's Roll The Bones.
