:nono: Dude to each his own. I'd have to shoot myself if I had a plain boring color ( Sorry if I seem rude :skep: ) . Don't want to look like any Tom, Dick or Harry out there. There are way too many Bottlerockets around my way to keep it in a stock color.

But I'll be nice. I do like the setup and props on your bro's taste in bikes.

Got NUTHIN against being different, but none of those colors even belong on the same page together, let alone same bike! Blue levers, green paint, red cables/spokes?? And the gray stem just looks lost... But YES, that is totally just my opinion, so rock whatcha gotta. My bro up there likes things simple, I had to talk him into the white bash even. Here's MY idea of a stylish build, and it's even bordering on gawdy now... but it's for sale in my sig, goin to a PINK Rocket, maybe all polished components...? we'll see. I'll post it here when I get it...

:thumbsup: You are lucky. That pink is way better than last year's lavender looking one.

LOL, how did you recognize Oleta? Definitely going for the 80s GT/DYNO neon colors.What is your name and what do you ride? We may have met before. I'm usually there or at Markham. Just discovered the TOE and will be going back soon!!!

I ride a black heckler. I usually ride Markham although lately i've been riding Oleta on Sundays. I think I saw that bike on freeridesouth. That pic is making me want to call Santiago and get one ordered ASAP! Sweeeeet! :eekster:

I used to ride a black chase and a white Norco Fluid before, maybe you've seen those..

He has a black medium Bottle rocket in stock and they just got a couple of I-9s in some funky colors.

I'll be at the shop tomorrow around 2, to check up on my baby, LOL. It's seems that there is a race at Markham this Sunday so we are doing Oleta.

Are you color blind by any chance? Sorry if that seems rude...
Don't mind him razkal. Your colour scheme is HOT! Its close to what I had in mind for mine (iron horse sunday green), but I didn't know who to go to for the powdercoating so I went with the black instead.

Hey, how do y'all think the BR would work as an AM bike? I want a strong bike that is very flickable and such, but can also be pedaled around all day. With a huge seatpost and a light build, how would this work out?
This is a good question. I have been wondering the same myself. I am seriously considering getting either a Preston FR or a Bottlerocket. I've done some research on the forums and it seems the general consensus is that a Preston would be better for AM riding. However, I like the idea of the slightly slacker HA, longer TT and higher BB of the Bottlerocket. It does weigh 1/3 lbs. more than the Preston but that's not much. Aside from the short ST and the long post you'll have to run, is there any reason why the Bottlerocket wouldn't make a great AM/Trail bike? I've found some helpful information over on RideMonkey as well. It seems there are some guys over there that are selling their Prestons to get Bottlerockets.

i think the problem is that the Bottlerocket looks so sweet so everyone wants to convince themselves that it will work as a trail bike :) Depending on your height and riding style it might work out for ya, if you call Transition they'll help ya out but the Preston is really more their trail bike.
