Black tires for me personally, but this bike has never looked so good, I even like the wheel decals, must be going soft lol

I started removing the tacky decals from the rims but I couldn't be bothered with all of them.
So those are staying in, at least until I find the time to peel them off.
They "kind of match" the frame colour so it's not too bad.....

So many shades of silver and white. I want to like it but man that's ugly. That fork always seems awkward looking without lower guards... top heavy looking. Good effort nonetheless.

I think grey is a tricky one when trying to match, specially components from different manufacturers as each one of them has their own idea of "silver".

As I see it, the guy that has put this thing together may have 2 problems:

- He's colour blind. Judging by his previous bikes and how he dresses, I would say this is very possible.
- As many housewives, he's a bit fond of "50 shades of Grey" and tried to go that way.

As for the fork....the guy seems awkward looking himself, so I think it matches his personality.

What kind of hubs are you running - they're white? Not a lot of painted options out there. How are the electronic bits performing? I love the idea of no cables, but I'm a luddite so that scares me.

more pics man!

Hi. The hubs are Tune King & Kong. Lovely bits of German engineering, which I really likee.
The electronic thingies are OK so far. No problems. Work as they should as long as I remember to charge the batteries every 2 or 3 weeks. They are super easy to install and adjusting the derailleur properly takes like 3 minutes? Even tech dinosaurs like me are able to do it. The derailleur has already suffered a couple of impacts but luckily enough it is not made of swiss cheese. I cannot recommend them enough, tbh.
