    ... and if we just ... Anyone have photos of an orange fat (or skinny) bike with polished/silver

    a polished/chrome/silver seatpost, stem or handle bars?? Did a search and could not get any results although I know I have seen them posted before -

    Will be getting an orange XL 907 (thanks BiIl and Jamie at CRC!! really appreciate your help on this project) and thinking of ways to modify it going forward but I wanted to see what the silver/polished stem/bars/seatpost would look like before investing in them. For ex. polished Thompson offset seat post, Thompson polished stem, perhaps Chromag silver handlebars with a high rise - at this point I plan to go with an orange bashguard from blackspire but will start another thread to address those options.

    Went with ALL black instead

    I ordered my Surly Necromancer back when it had the much cooler Black Ops name and decided to run with the "stealth" -- no silver at all. I even replaced the silver nuts and bolts for black anodized ones (BTW, the Necromancer needed 24 black bolts -- it has a lot more braze-ons than the standard Pugsley).

    THB, just wrap your existing stuff with reynolds wrap tin foil. That would give you an idea. Might score some at a local UFO club.
    There is no charge for awesomeness......or attractiveness.

    Good rep does not wash out the bad, nor the bad the good.

    This, while funny, would probably give you an idea.... Just don't let anyone catch you, it would be hard to explain....

    good idea on the silver foil.....

    but I ran out using it all up on the seat post and had to use up my stash of tin foil hats on the stem and handlebars!

    the sad part is

    I might have hypothetically tried the tin foil thing...but no photographic evidence exists... heck who am I kidding....I need to make sure there's no chain rub before playing around with my new orange barbie!!!

    nice Neck Romancer!!!! I love the new name ... I suspect Surly will offer a decal one day for it..if not...they should. I would have got one of those or a Moonlander but couldn't get a definite answer from my LBS on an arrival date - they don't seem to stock Surly's for some reason but the bike techs love the Surly bikes.
