    second the white option with an eye to go with white brake/cable housing and silver seatpost, white grips.......not that they'll stay white for long...

    I am definitly sticking with black seatpost and black cables -- just upgraded those

    (cables were white stock and i did not like it )

    I am leaning more towards black or red... i know black would look fine, but would the red look better?

    none, i was given on good authority those are crap. Was gonna buy the blue recently but got convinced otherwise. I found a blue composite - doesnt look as good, but stronger for $5 more. sorry to be a killjoy, but beats a bent bash ring.

    My first reaction: white, but as it's a drivetrain part and you've got a big white seat tube, on second thoughts black would look best

    Go raw aluminum-because if you really need it, you will use it and scrape any color off of it anyway!

    Black. Enough red already, and white will be ugly stained in no time.

    I've got the red one but you've got a lot of red already. I'd go with black.

    Mine is getting a little beat up after ~6 months use but nothing too bad and I've had some pretty good hits. When it gets too beat up I'll rotate it a quarter turn For $15 on Chainlove you can't beat it.

    alright thanks guys for all the responses... looks like im going to stick with my gut and get a black one.. now i also have decided to convert this to a 1x9 (32T x 11-34T)

    any suggestions on a chainring manufacturer? i was thinking of just matching the raceface bash (34T) with a raceface ring (32T)

    Are you aware that you can get pretty little colored ti chainring bolts as well? They come in red, black, blue, and I think some other colors. I mean...since you're taking the big step and going with black.....

    Might not sound like much, but if you're concerned about the appearance of your ensemble...plus they are light! I mean....for another 25 bucks you can get colors and a weight savings of something like.....15 grams.

    Pretty risque, I know. But still......Something to consider....

    Other Real Purty Stuff

    ya I know.

    If you scroll down the page, they also carry those pretty little bar end tassels. These also come in different colors....multiple colors (rainbow), and in different lengths. And don't pass up the matching colored shoe laces. (In ultraIight weight nylon of course)

    There's another page on custom wheel reflectors and nifty clown decals for your helmet.

    The Centurion discount applies to all these items.
