    Chris King hubs: gold or navy?

    I'm planning on getting some wheels built with Chris King hubs and cant decide between gold or navy. I've never actually seen these hubs in person. I like the gold but is it too "blingy"? The navy might be nice too. The wheels will be going on a black SB95. Which would you pick?

    If you keep them long enough, gold will fade to a kind of yellowish color. Navy will fade too but it will still be blue.
