    I am building this demo for the wife.
    She's uber girly, but in the funny way that she liked getting her pink stuff (no pun intended) dirty.

    I need as much pink on this bike as I can get.

    Anyone know of sources or gear that is pink for the following parts:

    - Brakes
    - Cranks
    - Flat pedals
    - Bars
    - Grips (Odi makes some)
    - Someone good to powder coat her new fork
    - Seats
    - Saint Levers
    - Spokes
    - Stem for a fox 40
    - Nuts and bolts

    Thanks a lot.

    I was looking at getting some I9 wheels in pink for my GF. I've seen photos of those pink mono's here on RM somewhere - they look great!

    I am going to see if they will give me a package deal with Straitline. I have their levers on my DH bike, love them and they're strong.

    Any ideas for fork powder coating, cranks, maybe a seat?

    Purple I9's look tits. But if pink is your thing, I bet they make a nice set of pink wheels.

    Maybe PC the fork lowers? Ill be tearing apart a Fox RLC soon and the lowers will get some treatment for a girl, not sure what direction Im going to take yet.... some sort of fading star pattern I think.

    It's just missing the Pink Oury grips. It looks pretty cool, though. Well for being a pink girls bike :D

    When you find a place to PC the fork... Do share. I'm interested in finding a place to do a couple of my forks, too.

    Pro coat lake elsinore, they have done several items for me and Im pleased. Great care to masking, even coat and quality product!
    They did my rims, crowns and more. As good as my guy who used to do it for us when I was anodizing!

    Normally when people try to match colors you end up with so much variation in hue between components is looks like complete ass.

    Tell her congrats on getting an assembly that at least really does match.

    Does she wear a helmet that's shaped like a hello kitty head?:D

    Oh make no mistake, I am running plenty of pink on my bikes. Pink grips, pink king hubs/head set, and a little pink horn on my 303.

    Wife's family has a huge stacked odds for the wife having breast cancer, so if I have to decorate my wang to get people on board, then that's what I am going to do.

    I've worked at a cancer ward, and let me tell ya, I've seen some frick'n amazing miracles come out of that place. There's really no choices, you fight it or you fight it some more. That's pretty much it.
