I think an EXT would look even better . . .

Thanks Bro! I did not know the dangers...HAHA!

The wheels are Velocity Blunt SS on DT aerolites and Onyx Vespers. ALL chrome/silver because black is boring.

I like chrome but everything chrome/silver is a little much. Chrome rims, silver spokes, silver fork with some black nipples and black hubs to break it up would have been better IMO. Just a little more black to match the stanchions. It’s a classic example of falling into the trap of going with everything (insert colour here) cuz everything is available in (insert colour here). That said everyone’s vision is different and it’s still a cool ride, enjoy it.
I didn't "fall into a trap" I knew exactly what I wanted and the look I was after. Walk into any bike shop in the world and count the mountain bikes on the floor with black hubs. If I wanted boring ass black I would still be riding the stock wheels. Carry on with your boring brain, I think differently.

Have you not been in this thread before? Some seriously nice bikes get dogged on hard here. And your bikes is very nice. need a black or silver shock to complete the package.

Never been one for raw rims but that’s me. I would have done black.

Settle down son, it’s only an opinion. If that’s the look you were going for you succeeded. But hey, consider this a life lesson. Post your own bike up to be judged on a public forum and be prepared that not everyone will like exactly what you built.

I really like silver hubs as well I have exact same Onyx Vesper's on my new bike.

silver rims just look weird to me. i really want to like them but i just see the early 2000's aluminum rims every time instead

I agree completely. I don't think the short travel linear suspension design would work with a coil though.

Honestly one of the sickest bikes i have ever seen, really sad i don't see Saracen getting much love on this page. I have got one but why are they such a rare bike to see ?

My bad, not a Scout.
My own ride has silver hubs so I do like silver as well just not ALL the parts silver. Anyway this is a waste of time. Carry on.

I wanna add some fuel to the fire. Not a fan of the silver rims really but I think the rear shock stands out more. I'd slap a EXT on there. Form over function right??

Kashima looks average here / all the time. A black shock would look much better.
