After much consideration, I've decided that the Scott Team Issue is my "dream bike". The frameset arrives Monday.

I've been accumulating the components to install, however I'm having a hard time deciding on bars, stem and seatpost. I want them to be from one manufacturer so I don't have too much of a mix and match bike. Considerations are weight and looks and of course cost. I like FSA, (will have an FSA crank) however I'm not sure how the red graphics will look. Easton makes nice stuff as well, and appears the yellow in their graphics would work nice.

Lastly, wheelset? Kysrium SL seems the way to go, but I'm not convinced all the silver looks that great?? Am I wrong? What alternatives similar in performance and cost are there to the Kysriums that you'd recommend and would look fabulous?

So....what do you think?

Thanks!!

Chris

I've got a team and it's a great bike. I have ritchey bar, stem and seatpost. The ksyrium ES look sweet. My LBS let me swap them for the K's on it.

Whatever you do it'll be a great bike
