Well I think you have gone a little bit OTT with the red anodising.
But the build is very nice indeed. What levers are they, they look comfy! :)

Wow! I cant imagine how much that cost! When going to all that expense, why didnt you use red nipples? A red USE alien alu seatpost would look great too. No such thing as overkill when it comes to bike jewelry :).

All of those parts are available that way. Hope is awesome when it comes to colors. They have bore caps, lever blades, reservoir caps, etc in every color they normally offer for regular pieces like headsets and hubs.

The idea with the red was to use bits just here and ther and trying to keep a theme...but it always going to be a personal choice ...I'm just glad the days of Purple are gone :|

The levers are Dangerboy's there is a little story there I was going to buy them from the UK imprters Freeborn they said it would take 6-8weeks and cost me £55 +postage :shock: ....so I orderd them from the US Paid £48inc Delivery and got em 9 days later :D

A lot :D..I would have used red nipples but the shop selling them only do silver alloy which is what the are. To have got red nipples would have ment buying elsewere and costing £180.oo so u see why i made with silver.. lol!

I love USE seatpost I have them on 3 other bikes but wanted to have the same carbon finnish as the bars and stem.
