Im real close to ordering a custom Marinoni frame, im all measured and the tech details are worked out But Im having a bear of a time figuring out the color, actually the letter coloring.
here is the link to the marinoni website http://www.marinoni.qc.ca/Html/Colors.html
I originally was going with Shogun green but I know id get tired of a real bright color after awhile.
I lobbied a bunch of non cyclist friends and it seems that most votes went to Platine.
the hard part is what color for the letters/graphics?? out of the group I surveyed the most artsy fartsy of my female friends (one is a interior decorator , my aunt) said if the Platine was the same color as the website photo SILVER would look great. 4 out of 6 said silver (if the platine was as the photo shows.)
but it may be lighter???? the 2007 paint chip was lighter. the shop is checking with the factory. if its lighter and silver wont show well (I dont mind subtle) if silver wont work would white or black be a better choice?? or go with Bonzai green and white or ?? as a last ditch Neutral color choice?
I do like the dark colors but they show every scratch and get hot in the summer.
Many thanks need to make a descision soon
