Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, my friend. Some people don't care about color and others (like me) aren't all that thrilled with any of the stock colors and opt for custom.

Hey Joe,
Here are a few links within this forum with some photos of our colors...but...not one of these pictures does justice to the vibrance and pop our colors show in person. Good luck deciding which one, and keep in mind that if you want to change your color you have until P.M. Monday to do it.

color

I have a superdust x-5 which I love. The color changes in different light and any other color components will go with it. Now white is an option which somebody posted a picture of theirs in white. I think that looks great as well.

Iwill let you know something in a few weeks about getting my girlfriend set up with a green bike her inseem is 26. Talk to you later thanks again for all your help. Joe Raz

Color Choices

Thank God Sherwood provided some levity by providing visual information to help this guy choose.

What happened to Grinch Green? Cosmic Orange? I agree the blue and Superdust are very nice. Once he rides it the color isn't the focal point now is it?

huh? he asked about colors as he has not seen em in person....just figured we could help him by showing what we have since he will of course have to pick one.

but you are right of course, color is not the primary driver but why not pick one you like while you are at it.

cheers

Of the colors I have seen in person (superdust, blue and orange), the blue is the most "wow", and visually stunning. It just seems to have an inner light to it.

I'd get black.

Hey cool, that green one is mine. Man, S'wood dug up an oldie thread. Kinda nostalgic to see it looking like that, all new and shiny-like.

Too bad of course that the green pigmentation, being right in the peak of the solar irradiance spectrum, quickly faded once I took it outdoors. Yes the peaked frog-piss color that it has become makes me ashamed to be seen on the trail. Blue, yes, BLUE is the color you want.



(all the bad-asses are riding blue)

Blue is nice ...

and even though I like the Blue powdercoat on my Salt more local riders have complimented me on my Red Witch !! Like mentioned photos don't do justice to how nice the colors are ! Anyway, my next Ventana uh, I mean I would like to see what cosmic orange looks like in person sometime ! More than likely once you ride it you'll like it regardless of color choice ! TIG.
