Hey guys,

This is my first bike build of any sort, as well as my first track bike, so I want it to be a good one! The frame is matte black w/a slight acrylic gloss, and the quill stem, bars and seatpost are all frosted chrome. My thought are to keep it all low profile, so stick with black Arione saddle, black wheels and black bartape, but I was wondering, would a chrome crankset throw out the balance? Should I stick with a black crankset and be a shadow racer??

Personally I dont like black cranks or wheels. Chrome cranks for sure. Maybe chrome rims and spokes too. Im not much of a fan of the black 'stealth' bikes either, a bit like tattoos, everyone has them.
Black and chrome sounds good.
foos idea has merit - red tyres, seat and bar tape with a flash of red somewhere on the frame.

Throw anything you want on it, cover it with stickers, be a hipster. That way when the bike shop has one orange tyre on sale, it will match the rest of your non-colour scheme.
