    color clash?

    I want an air 9 carbon or aluminum not sure yer. I really like the tang and black colors, but I have a white Rockshox Reba XX fork. Would it look weird with a white fork and tang and black frame? Anyone have a picture of their bike with a white fork and tang and black frame?

    I have discussed this scenario with friends. A Tang/White bike that looks good is called "Tight". If it looks bad, you have yourself a "Wang".

    Good luck! =) I think you can do a lot with white grips and saddle to reign it all in.

    Personally,

    I am not a fan. It especially drives me bananas to see blacked out FS bikes w/a white fork.. No matter how nice the fork is. Again, not trying to come off as jerk, just a personal preference

    PF

    It's about personal preference. I actually like the tang with white accents better -- that's how I have my Jet 9 set up.

    Issue is that the new tangs have more dominant black graphics so your question is valid.
    Here's one I snagged from Niner's Facebook Page. I think it looks good with other white accents like the seat and grips.

    I agree with PanFry and really need to get a black fork on my Jet 9.

    You could always let your riding speak for itself and stop worrying about what color the fork is.
