That picture would probably be in focus if my name was Michael J Fox

The orange bits ruin what is actually quite a nice build, sorry

You think the orange ruins it?

The frame has gold details in it...

Gold and orange are different colours and do not compliment each other

I agree, the orange bits are not doing that frame any favors.

Sorry, but they're right.

I'd just replace everything which is orange/gold with black parts and go for a black cockpit as well.

I think the spacers, headset cap, bar ends and seat post binder are anodized gold colour, just not the same shade of gold as the decor paint on the frame set.
Btw, nice bike! What size are you running?

The 'golden' bits are not that bad. I would prefer a black seatpost clamp, black hoods and bartape, and less spacers.

Not a fan of the gold (as a color :wink: ) but the bike definitely deserve better pictures! :thumbup:

Its a really beautiful frame granted I've seen the same one up close.

I understand that you're trying to compliment the gold accents on the frame, but I think that the posters above are saying that the additional bits you added are detracting attention away from the frame. Afterall, the first thing that caught my eye in the picture was the seatpost clamp.

I'd agree with the others, stay with black and it keeps all eyes focused on the white.....great attempt though!
