    Anyone adding some color to their TX 29ers?

    The one criticism that seems to be fairly consistent amongst TX 29er owners is the color. I tend to prefer solid color frames as it makes them easier to accessorize, should I choose to do so. I enjoy personalizing my bikes like that.

    How have you added color to your rides? I have the "0" model, which can be a bit tricky. I don't want to go with just white or blue - I want to make this thing "pop" a bit. Was thinking about accessorizing with some magenta or purple bits.

    So, how about any of you? What have you done to spice up your ride?

    I have the 1 and am ordering the SRAM foam red lock-ons. I like the W,B,R color scheme and specifically how Giant accentuated with some white bits. Anyone know if Giant's grip lock rings would fit another grip?

    I built up a frameset that has the green accents, blinged it out with anodized green and purple stuff. Guess I'll have to take some pictures...

    Looks like you removed the Gobi saddle. Did you not like it? I bought an X1 but demoed a 0 and the Gobi seemed pretty good.

    The saddle wasn't very, um, female-friendly. I hated it within the first five minutes of my demo ride and knew it'd be the first thing to go when I bought the bike. I swapped it out for a women's-specific Specialized saddle and couldn't be happier. I don't know how you guys can stand those things!
