Q. Whats the hardest part about buying a new 5spot?
A. deciding on the colour!!

Its doing my head in, the local (New Zealand) distributor has a Sangria coloured frame in stock, and anything else will be a 6 week wait an extra $2-300. I'm not 100% sold on the Sangria colour, can anyone who's got one post some pics of the frame?

Or should I just bite the bullet and get a custom colour....

Thanks guys, keep em coming!

Might have to get the shop to get the frame in and if I reeeeeealy don't like it I'm sure the wholesaler take it back if I order a custom colour one. The problem is that while I'm not that excited about the sangria, I'm having a hard time picking out a custom colour anyway...

I'm in a similar situation. I'm about to order a 5 Spot and I'm not sure about the color. Anyone with a charcoal metallic grey that can post some pictures? Thanks.

same here, got mine on closeout and wasn't sold on the color. but, I'm a cheap bastard, so that had some sway, plus I decided that I'd send it in for a refresh after riding it for a few years and choose a custom color at that time.

I love the sangria on my 2007 TNT Spot

Thanks, XT + dark coloured fox forks, should be pretty similar to how mine looks (using a GT Force as a donor bike). Off to the bike shop now...
:p
