So I'm currently gathering parts for my CR1 build. The bike is raw carbon with white/silver details. I'll be putting all black kit on it.

Do I go with white or black cable housings?

Go with pink!

Or the lightest housing you can find.

I was thinking about it but there's the issue of clashing kit.

I was thinking about just getting SRAM housing to go with the groupset, and to take advantage of the extras that come with it, what would people advise?

I'm British, what's the relation to bikes?

The white housing looks cheap IMO. I think the gold Jag would be sweet.

Definitely in agreement with the gold suggestions, I was however planning to
keep the gold more on the subtle side with a Gold Chain, ferrules and crimps.
With maybe matching QR Skewers and seat clamp.

Gold cables may be a bit much? The braided Jagwire one does look cool though...

If there's as much silver as it looks like there is in the frame, go with the silver braided Jagwire. Definitely don't to gold unless you plan on using other gold accents to tie it in. If not silver, then white for sure.

I'd go full Beetlejuice with alternating black and white Nokon housings and Fizik Dual tape in alternating black/white.

I have the Fizik logo tape (Black with white logo).

The silver braided Jagwire is definitely a good option! How does this fair with cable rub?

Nokon is another option I was considering but it's fairly expensive.

Black all the way, the frame is busy enough.
White would go with all-white kit, maybe.
Trust me, I've been called a tart many times.

I've been very happy with braided Jagwire in the past. It's not super-top-of-the-line stuff, but its plenty slick and more durable than the higher end stuff. (I gave up on Gore for being too fragile in favor of the Jag.)
