    pink/green bike frame

    I am looking to paint my cross bike something loud and standoutish... i have been reading up on painting aluminum and will likely undertake this activity this winter... I want the main frame pink or lime green, with the wires/handlebar tape opposite of the main frame color.

    I am stuck on paint schemes though... like different colors on seat stay/chain stay, and i suck at photoshop.

    i really like this paint color scheme, but design is where i am at a bit of a loss (maybe in reverse colors)


    Anyone have any ideas out there?

    I like this setup with the black seat stays/chain stays... maybe green handle bar wrap and green cables. i think the seat/chain stays tie in the black


    i want the bike to stand out for sure... but not to look stupid

    Take a look through Geekhouse Bike's website. Here is an example.



    BTW... Just so you know, white cross bikes are faster.

    ah, no. Red is faster.

    From a framebuilding standpoint, all I can say about pink or neon green bikes is that they are far, far more likely to explode than those painted some reasonable color. thousands of times more likely to explode. So think of that before you pull the trigger.
