The blue wheels are definitely still my pick, the black ones don't stand out as much and the 27" wheels are downright boring.
I think the plain wheels tip this bike into a classic beauty territory. All it needs is some 600 arabesque cranks with that combo and it would be timeless. Buy a cheap ally (Visp) or the like to hang your garish high coloured hipster bits on. It's a classically styled bike with a soul, and you should treat her with some respect. Man, I sound like a retro grouch don't I ?
