Excluding the basic colour of metal (silver) and the grey which comes close to the silver in tone there are only three colours on the bike: red, white, black/carbon.
What do you mean "lots of colors" ? Three is a small number.

thanks guys, yes I am really pleased but i think i will get try and reign in the combinations of colours longer term. Lots of colours together as such which is a little too much but I am gonna let things get tired before replacing, eg bar tape. I may sand/strip the seatpost back to ud finish and relaquer to get that back to black. Prend, did you do that on your omni post on your stoked build?

Already carefully installed some latex tubes to try them, hopefully I won't blow them out! I quite fancy some veloflex as this is going to be my summer 'dry' bike and won't be looking for wet weather grip as such.

Great looking ride.

Can you post a pic of the crank? I'm curious to see the rings - looks like a black outer and a silver inner?

EDIT: Just noticed the inner is the same, just that the silver teeth stood out more on the darker background of the first pic.

Thanks mate, i have been so pleased with the ride, despite what seem like cheap stock tyres and heavy old fulcrums its nice and stiff, especially at the headtube but seems to dull road vibrations beautifully.

A few changes, Veloflex Corsas added ( a biyatch to fit on fulcrum 7s ) , Elite Wilier cages, with final photo with now destickered wheels - 9g saved.

rides lovely Pete, it's the bike of the 4 I have had that just feels right. Everything seems to be there, sharp handling, comfy over crappy chip seal tarmac and 'heavy roads, good looks. It does deserve better wheels though as the fulcrum 7s are heavy circa 1849 grams. I'm either going Farsports 38/50 clinchers or something like Campagnolo Eurus by mid august. The veloflexes make one hell of a difference to the ride though even on the fulcrums.
