    So the bike got here, it is in complete dissasembly mode until I get ahold of the carbon wheels, new XTR, etc. aesthetic question for the hive mind...the bike is completely black. All black parts, forks, cranks, frame, wheels, etc. I am ordering new Guide RSC's (yeah, I know, I like em).
    Thinking about ordering silver brakes to offset the murder.
    Whattya all think? Will I regret it?

    The only anodized parts on there will be the alloy presta valves (blue) so it is easier to find the valve while spinning the wheel. Everything else is black.
    Which I don't necessarily love.

    Chainless and brakeless DH is the only way to really learn to ride, man.

    Silver brakes will look stupid. Black. For sure.

    Brakes slow you down bro!

    But yeah, what toast said. I put silver brakes on a black bike once and though it looked whack.
    There's nothing better than sliding down snow... flying through the air.

    Ordering XTR Enduro (4 piston), so color is now moot.
    Anything else I should obsess over?

    Been thinking about doing some silver black wheels(silver hubs and spokes) on a raw framewith black links. Maybe if you did more than just the brakes. It will never clash with anything in the future, same as black. Future proof. Guides are just ok. Get codes if you get anything brake wise from sram

    New levers are aluminum and not carbon so that they bend, and don't break (as easily). Designed to be bent back.
