Folder, I guess you're right on this. Considering that there was only one color choice, why someone would select pea-soup is beyond me (by the way, the color really isn't called pea-soup, it's something like moss green something or other, but it really does remind me of pale green pea soup).
But maybe they looked at their target audience for that kind of bike (i.e., it's definitely not the sporty, rugged high-octane mountain bike, but more a budget-conscience, knock around kind of low intensity bike) and figured a more muted, sedate color would be more appealing (and would also get someone like me to consider spending a little bit more money for a sportier model, albeit with a nicer color)......
Either way, I'm glad I was able to pick up the '06 model with the color I wanted at a great price.
