    Hub, Fork, shock etc colour scheme.

    Post by Axiom on Tue Nov 27, 2012 5:57 am

    Below is a picture on my front end, would like some thoughts and suggests on a better colour scheme. I'm thinking black hubs, fork and shock, what do you think?

    Black always looks tidy on forks and hubs imo, tho if you're changing the shock I'd suggest fitting an upgraded one (not RMS) - the YSS ones are really good for the money
