    I'm looking to get some orange colored components for my bike this season, and i was wondering what you guys would suggest for components that come in orange?
    I know that most companies make things in a huge array of colors, but I'm having trouble finding things that come in orange.
    I'm probably already getting orange chris king hubs, and would like to get top of the line components.
    Any ideas?



    Thanks.

    I think you can still get the FUNN bars, stem, and soljam pedals from Ride-This in the orange anodize.

    Why not just get the parts you want and have them anodized or powder coated? Both of those finishes are inexpensive to have done.

    Is anodising actually pretty cheap?? I don't know anything about the process, except basically what it is. No one anywhere near me does it, either.
    Other than the companies listed above, BMX parts are your next choice. Stroll danscomp.com and you'll see about anything you could want in the line of basics, i.e. pedals, cranks, stems(22.2 clamp), sprockets, etc...

    That's been done like 4000 times. I think flat black with ano'd orange comps.
    IF you decide to have your own stuff colored...ano it or you can even have it powder coated in candy orange! Looks really good!

    I think Ringle did some orange MTX rims, but when i get my rims colored, i just have them powdercoated, its like $50 for a set of rims, be sure to get some beefy rims
