So, my new bike has gold SUNringle’ wheels. It’s also got gold handlebar tape and gold Nokon cable housing. It’s kinda flashy, but I like it.

Since putting the bike together, I’ve had trouble with the chain skipping when it’s on the 11-tooth cog. Some quick perusal of the forums at http://www.roadbikereview.com confirmed that it’s not an uncommon problem with Wipperman chains. The brand most people recommended for use with SRAM drivetrains is KMC. And guess what. KMC offers a gold chain.

I’ve created a poll (over there on the right) by which you can indicate whether or not you think I should get the gold KMC chain. It’ll be interesting to see whether anyone actually reads this, and whether anyone actually cares what color my chain is.
