Computer sensor mounting ties.

I was thinking that the ties that hold my computer sensor to the forks pretty much ruin the graphics, and was contemplating painting them so they match the graphics.
Has my OCD really gone too far? :)

    You can always use coloured cable ties. Painting, though - definitely too much OCD!

    You need something more to worry about :wink:
    Can you see it while riding ?
    Can anyone else see it as you whizz past ?

    Perhaps not but he can see it as he sits five feet away drooling with slava coming from the side of his mouth and a napkin round his neck whilst lavishing praise on the love of his life.

    And sometimes it's just that he knows it doesn't match.

    When I resprayed my MTB I got some red cable ties to match. To me it made a big difference not having highly visible black cable ties, looks so much neater. Doubt if anyone else would notice though. I compromised on my road bike which I painted stripey and just used white cable ties.

    I say you should have your bike as you want it.

    (I sprayed the bottle cages on the mtb red also - "Nurse...")

    You can never be too OCD with your bike.
    Paint away.
