    Should I paint it? Also, Small Tall build thread.

    Here is my small tall I am planning on finishing tomorrow. I was wondering whether you think I should paint it or leave it. By the way, I am a guy and it says "Disney Princess" and "Vertical- Vogue Edition."

    After typing that, I think I shouldn't paint it. But I would like to hear your input.



    More Pictures to follow...

    Guess it comes down to your personal preference. I heard not too long ago that pink was becoming a color that guys shouldn't be afraid of, but I still shy away from it. If you like it, then keep it as is. Or, try it out like that for a little bit, and if you don't like the results then paint it. This is the alt bike forum, so I am guessing there will be more votes for keeping it pink since it might add more to portraying you as a guy who truly doesn't care what the world has to say about his custom creation. The furthest I ever went for "shock appeal" was hanging a small stuffed Disney character off of my car's rear bumper until it fell off.

    Yeah, everything fits really well. I am considering stacking another one on top in the future and using the middle BB, but for now it is a great fit.

    I never understood the purpose of tall bikes, but I have to admit that it would look cool if you put another frame on top, or maybe 2 more. As for paint, I would paint it if I were doing a build such as this.
