    To be fair, I am not going to lie, they are all pretty naff and most will be uncomfortable and won't last all that long.... But out of the ones you have given the options for, it would have to be the FK's

    I'd go for Fks, only because they are yellow But it's up to you as most people won't see it. It all depends how much you wanna spend, how low you want it to go and how hard the ride will be...
