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 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.
