The buildlist will pretty much be a parts transfer from my Giant (see signature line) except for picking up a KCNC seatpost to replace the Extralite.
The one thing I'm worried about is all the white. If the frame had black decals then this probably wouldn't be a problem, but with the silver I think it may be TOO white with white saddle and tape. So, the question is: do I take the red speedneedle from my Fetish (see below again) and find a new saddle for it (there will be other red bits), do I just go with the white speedneedle from my Giant, or should I consider another color (black, silver, etc.)...then match the bartape accordingly?
I'm in the States, so it'll be a while before I get the frame; starting to obsess over it already Sorry for all the parenthesis...
It bashes the current fashion of white, but I think it will look stupid good, because with such a white and silver paint job everything white will take it over the top.

A custom fizik with white sides and a red stripe down the middle, white tape, red hudz and silver/red nokons are what you need!
Oh, and get that stem sprayed!

My speedneedles have been much nicer to my backside than my arione was, so I want to stick with one of those. Do they make orange or would it have to be custom? I've only seen: red, blue, yellow, black, white... It's an interesting idea though.

White or black. It's incredibly difficult to match different color nuances.
I appreciate the style police chiming in, and all white is probably how it will end up (at first at least) because I already have the parts, but I could be convinced otherwise. I agree with the comment on matching bits; 15 shades of orange would be worse than Frosty the Snowman rolling down the road.
I'm still open to ideas. Thanks for the replies thus far. I've heard that the red/orange stripe looks red in some light and orange in others, which could wreak havoc on a red or orange color scheme. Any current '07 white F10 owners care to chime in on that red/orange accent?

I did apologize in advance for doing so...kind of like apologizing to the shop owner as you steal money out of the cash register. I fully accept this as a ridiculous/trivial thread, but there's ice covering the streets, my new frame is floating somewhere around Germany, and I was off work yesterday...what's a guy to do?

This is the second time that it's come up so I'll ask again, do orange speedneedles exist?
No, but the yellow looks more like orange than yellow.
P.S. Go for the white look.
