Yeah.
I think I'd like hub decals, rim decals would be to much, to be matched with the frame. Maybe matching the fork/shock graphics as well.

That the grips are kinda off bugs me a bit, but the dude gets pass for that.

I'd introduce another complementary color before putting more pink on there. Electric blue perhaps

If someone on here did it, I'd probably like it. Since it was done by someone I don't know, they're a fucking idiot.

Maybe if you got those sparkle blue giro shoes for a couple years back, and one of them Troy Lee Helmets in bass boat sparkle paint.

That’s not even an option because they specced the cross fork rather than the gravel one that takes the proprietary fender.

Downtube shifter? Really?

Also, those pedals suck.

And just noticed one bottle and it's on the seat tube way down low.

Can't speak for the pedals, but it's a townie. Downtube shifter is fine. I never bring a bottle when commuting/running errands.

To me the point of a Townie is to be practical and easy to use. Downtube shifter on an upright bicycle is dumb and impractical. I always carry a bottle, I get thirsty. Those pedals are almost worse than just plain spd's, if homeboy wants pedals that work with regular shoes there's so many better options.

WI singlespeed cranks with a non-n/w chainring and a Paul chainkeeper is a great way to burn $400 and get dogshit performance

bonus: if the keeper actually catches the chain it will ruin your day by spinning around and seizing the drivetrain

Also the Paul brake levers are horribly unergonomic, and why the fuck wouldn't you use much cheaper/better hydros? Alfine even comes in shiny silver.

You know that the person who built that bike really likes it a lot.

Which is reason enough for you guys to poop all over it.

No fun allowed.
