    Am in the process of "murdering out" my STP, although am thinking about a matte black rear end with gloss black custom decals and gloss black with subtle gold flake on the front end. That way I figure if I get bored of the full black look I can start adding in more gold parts (i.e. chain, bolts, pedals etc) and it will all still tie in.

    Either that or I will just get the thing put together with whatever parts I can find so I can finally go out and ride it instead of turning my passion into a fashion show

    Wow. Lots of touchy little wussies on this thread. I've had 4 negative reps and not a single one signed.

    You can do better than that.

    I got two positive reps, btw.

    Even better, why do they call it a murder of crows?

    Gotta say I was over the "blacked out" look years ago.

    Wish more companies would bring back silver......especially rims.
    I crashed hard enough on my Tallboy to break my leg,
    The carbon is way more durable than most people.

    +1, would rep if I could.

    Ritchey and Thomson are the only folks making silver stems and posts these days. Not too many folks are making high quality polished bars. There's a timeless quality about silver components, all the white and fancy colored bits will look dated in a few years but silver components will still look fresh.

    Silver may always "look fine" but it is lame. Old yuppies drive silver Lexus sedans and always will.

    Silver is the blandest color available, sorry but it is. And, black will not look dated. Black has always looked cool and always will.

    I know a little somethin' about murdered-out bikes. I built a fleet of 'em (well, 3 outta 4 in this pic):

    All of 'em are gone now, but I'm in the process of building a townie/cruiser in murdered out style. Hunting for the model now...
