G-Sport also has the matching Safety Orange hubs and rims!
And, if you want to go all out, Sunday Bikes has a matching Aaron Ross Funday frame!

Aaron Ross’ Orange Posted by Francis on Wednesday, September 22nd, 2010

The first bike up on the list is Aaron Ross’ Orange! Safety Orange is the new colorway we have lined up. The only part we have available right now for sale is the Aaron Ross Grip but you can expect everything else to come trickling in later this year.

One other thing that’s new in this bike check is Aaron Ross’ signature tire! It keeps the keyboard theme of all his other signature parts and the thread pattern are inverted keys which spell out some fun messages from Aaron Ross and a handful from the contest we held last year (we’ll be announcing the winners soon). Click around the flipbook above for more photos and a complete parts list!
