    Anyone have Onyx hubs in Teal Candy Powdercoat or Antifreeze color? Need color advice

    I'm about to order new wheels for my 2016 SC 5010, and I'm trying to decide on a hub color that will look good on this bike. I've recently vinyl wrapped over the fluorescent yellow frame accents and changed the fork decals, so the original teal is the only accent color on the otherwise matte black bike. I've decided on Onyx hubs, and I'm considering either going the safe route with matte black, or trying to achieve some bling with Onyx's Teal Candy Powdercoat or Antifreeze colors. The Onyx teal looks to be a bit brighter/lighter than the SC teal logos, but should be a fairly decent match. On the other hand, I could avoid trying to match at all and go with the Antifreeze color.... If anyone owns or has seen Onyx hubs in these colors, or even if you haven't, I'm looking for advice. Pics of my bike and the hub colors below Thanks in advance for your input.Anyone have Onyx hubs in Teal Candy Powdercoat or Antifreeze color?

    Both of the antifreeze pictures are ones that I took of wheels that I built. It's one of my favorite colors.

    The picture of the teal hubs is not candy teal, its just Teal.

    Both would look cool on your bike.

    Thank you, and I hope you don't mind me using those pics. My Google image search yielded very few results, hence the need to create this post looking for input and opinions on these colors.

    I really dig the Antifreeze color too, just afraid it may be a big leap on a black & teal bike.

    I can't remember if this was teal or turquoise. Either way, they match my Yeti nicely.

    Note to self: black is a good spoke color. That said, I think the teal would look sharp on your Santa Cruz.
