Braided Brake Hose Color opinions needed...

Hi all!
I'm about to get a couple of braided brake hoses for the front brakes, although I'm not sure if blue or black.

The color scheme of my bike is this:


Which color would you get, black or blue?

Re: Braided Brake Hose Color opinions needed...

Forget the brake lines. Is that a senna rep helmet?

Much much more coolerr!!

Just kidding man...I never saw a senna replica in my life and don't know personally anyone who did. And if I did have one, I would never place it in the top of my tank nor would ride with a helmet that costs more than my whole bike+equipment+couple months rent...for sure!

I find much easier cleaning a smooth surface than dirt sticking between the braid wires...if I was going for that look, I would get at least a clear cover...
