    Just strip the parts off and rattle-can it flat black. Or strip it to bare metal and anodize. Get that Type III they use on flashlights and such and it'll never scratch.

    Thanks for the head's up. They sure seem to keep their value well. Tempted to get the $750/buy-it-now one, but that $140 shipping kind of sucks. May have been a little rough on it too; seat is tore up a bit & bar ends look all scratched up...

    I think the 140 charge is to cover the packing fee a bike shop charges and the acutual shipping. I know when I sold my full sized Hybrid it costs 82 bucks to ship it from Seattle to the Midwest and than 45 bucks for the box/packing fee. Shipping costs are thru the roof now and on ebay many sellers are eating some of the real costs for materials and shipping. It used to be the other way around.

    Pro tip: avoid listings with dirt cheap shipping. I've picked up 3 bikes from eBay that were unrideable when I got them do to shipping damage. Two weren't a big deal,just filed a claim and bought the parts/got the wheels trued,but the third has turned into a project.

    Only 2 weeks or so till the 14 Hooligan is ready to be picked up.
    Any one else on this board have one on order? When I placed my order in Late Feb there were 2 left for all the US the dealer said. Probably sold out by now I figure.

    This page has the best collection of Hooligan pics.

    Did you get yours from Gregg's Bellevue Cycle. Nice people and shop.
    I got rid of the road bike, a Giant Defy for the Hooligan. The Road bike to me was just too serious of a bike, more for straight line riding without the crazy u turns and hops off a curb that I ride being in the city.

    Sweet! he cant stop riding it. I am starting to like the bold yellow and black for the States, the grey is a bit down imho.

    I am sure in time it will get some colour added, grey on its own is drab but add orange or red bits and graphics it will turn out great, seen many custom mopeds in dark grey with red accents and anodised red parts and they looked gorgeous, by the way we both usually build monkey and pit bikes as a hobby, I have a blinged up dax with snakeskin seat haha, were always modding bikes but recently getting into pushbikes again, I have a nice electra rallysport beach cruiser but want a xootr swift real bad when I get the funds!

    I wish we could get the rear derailleur equipped version here in the states, I'm not a big fan of the IGH 3 speed and it would suck to have to reequip the bike to get it.

    The grey is way nicer than that black+pseudoplaid vomit theme we get stuck with and I agree, a few well placed accents would be nice, too bad you can't get a bright red hedset cover and spacers like they had on the 2011 for your bike.

    Actually the first thing I would do is put a 55t or 56t chainring on that puppy! I find the gearing of the hooligans way too short stock.

    Yep, same here. I have xt's and a Alfine8 hub waiting for the build. May take a bit longer to build with the hub work.

    Just picked it up today.
    In person the bike looks a lot better than online pics. I was ready to cover up some of the colorful parts of the bike but when I saw it at the store there was no need, it looks just fine.
    Clearly this bike is made for flat rodes and city areas and taking it into stores and up stairs. Its ideal for that, just don't think it will take away your regular bike. To me it can't, I ran out of breath trying to go up a hill that I made it with my Sirrus. The big tires are OK, not really adjusted to them yet coming from 23mm tires. Its the U Turn thing that feels funny, you turn and the tire is so small and feels like you are going to tip over but you're not.
    It is slower than my Sirrus and takes more effort to ride fast, but I knew that coming in. Just wanted a change from every other bike you see on the road.

    Sorry,but I would have to give that the Krylon Touch.

    If they're still 135 rear-spaced,you could always swap in an 5+spd hub to give you more range.

    I think the stock tires are too big. Seem more natural to just go smaller width on the Hooligan.

    I'd say they're a touch on the skinny side. I need to get around to mounting my 1.6" Marathon Supremes. My 8 has 1.5" Marathon Racers. YMMV,but DC's got crappy roads and I have mild CT.

    Finally got in a full day of riding today, the bike in one word FUN.
    Rode around Downtown and Seattle Center and a local park and just more fun than my regular bike and a lot less serious in feel. Hard to describe, its like how you felt when you were just learning to ride as a kid and the training wheels were taken off fun. Its worth the money, dealer gave me a 100 dollar off msrp. Thanks Greggs Cycle.
