I’m yet to see the first white set of cages in any bike that looks good regardless of the bike, cages, or anything else. Black is the “go to”!

Hmm, don't think there's a lot wrong with mine :wink:

Pure aesthetics.. matching colors placed in strategic locations on the bike would allow viewer to flow through the bike with their eyes.
Place matching color at the edges locations, i.e. saddle, bar tape, brake hoods to match the decals on the frame, fork, stays or even wheels would allow viewer to flow through the bike as they observe.

I'm not a fan of predominantly black bikes, but here and there comes one that looks really great. This is one of them. :thumbup:
And those bidon cages are just in place 8)

Or not push up the exposure in post-processing.

That's what I thought too :mrgreen:
But the ENVE has the benefit of easy access due to the smaller frame size that I am on.

If everything on your bike is black or white, look for places (like bottle cages) to throw in pops of color.
