I'm about to get thunderbolts and a sunday sabretooth but i don't know what color for the sprocket. What should look best? A black one or a polished one?

Close up on the sprocket. stupid as i can be the bore of the sprocket was to small to fit on the crank. So i made it larger and now it fits tight.

Took the bike out for a little test ride and i must say its ride so smooth now. it feels alot stronger with the thunderbolts and i really like the 28t.

I also switched the grips to gome foam lock on grips with a woodgrain look. These feel a little bit more comfy but they have a little less grip. Also i'm not sure about the looks of it.

installed some Koolstop MTB pads. I got them for free and their performance is great! They look odd but its al about the function. Pics to come.

Well, I'm envious - that's one of my favorite color schemes. Classy & slick- nicely done!!

Thanks alot man! I had alot of ideas but this one seems the best and i'm happy about the result. I'm planning on changing the bars to a Tree Moto one in black but don't have the budget atm.

Changed the tires for the bad weather out here. i mostly ride in de woods and i didn't had grip with the powerblocks. the front tire is 2.0 width ans the rear a 1.85
I also run my stem upside down to get more higth. New bars are yet to come but i'm very busy with school so it might take some time.
