    Chris King Gold Color Hubs and Fox Fork/Shock with Kashima Coat: Color Clash?

    Anybody out there with Chis King Mnt Bike ISO Hubs in Gold Color on a wheelset paired with Fox Fork/Shock with the Kashima Coat? Any Pics? Does the Gold Hub Color clash with the Kashima Coat?

    ...I know, not a critical issue like how best to achieve uniform spoke tension. But, as occasional wheel builder, I get to make ALL choices in a new build.

    I have the pair on my bike. They seem fine to me. The colours don't "match" but it seems alright to me since the parts are fairly far apart. However, if you are asking this question you might be more of a fashionista than most, so my opinion might not be particularly relevant.

    ...just a guy building a new bike...part by part. Once built, it will be with me for a L O N G time. Thanks for your input.

    Kashima isn't even close to the gold that anodized parts use. IMO, brown would complement the kashima color better. Don't know if King makes brown anymore.

    I also don't the gold will match. The Mango color would match better I think.

    Just ordered a 2014 RockShox SID RCT3 Solo Air 120 29". Black, Black, Black. No more worries about too much Gold / Kashima. But, still gotta pick all the wheel parts. Choices, it is good to have choices.

    Gold grill (teeth), that's the ticket to tie it all together. Here in Oakland, that would be the bomb. Kashima color teeth. Sweet.

    I build many of my bikes from scratch. I pick all the parts. As do many others here.

    Not sure what your point is.

    The point is color choice for the parts the offer color choices.
