Cream. I haven't seen on may bikes, but in cars with black windows and such it really looks clean.

Keep the shine!

Don't loose the polished rear end and rockers on the painted frames!!!!

The polished rear looks so much nicer than all paint. Besides, the rear gets so much more abuse and abrasion than the front. Paint on the rear just ends up getting beat!

My favorite color would be Laguna Seca Blue and polished on my 08' frame in my grubby hands tomorrow, not January!:D

Wink Wink, Nod Nod, Ya know Ya know Ya know.....;)

I will agree with this. The ball-burnished rear ends add a nice touch of class. It gives the bikes a more boutique-ish look.

Since I'm 99% sure the XCL will be my next frame I might as well put in my 2 cents.:D
I totally agree with the ball burnished rear sections. They look great and don't get all chipped and scratched.
As far as colors, I really don't have a problem with any of the current offerings, but as others have said, a blue would look nice. Maybe something to match the blue bits on the Fox shocks.
I also think a cream or dark green metallic would look good. My original full suspension (way back) was an Amp B3 with a dark metallic green front and polished rear. It was really sharp.
