    looking for a specific 80mm fork.

    so, i'm looking for a neon yellow 80mm travel fork for my new (to me) bike.

    i've got a manitou skareb elite on there now, and i haven't taken it out for a real ride yet, but...it's black. and i really want neon yellow, because i feel like that would really tie the bike together. the frame is sort of electric blue, my brakes are the neon orange magura Johhny's, and i have anodized blue CK hubs and salsa skewers.

    also, if anyone has a line on the old raceface carbon/aluminum cranks that were black and neon green, or even better, the carbon/neon orange ones, that'd be great!

    if anyone thinks i'm joking, my dream bike is a steel hardtail with every part possible anodized purple. i LOVE obnoxious bikes.

    You could take your fork apart and have the lowers powdercoated whatever colour you want.

    The new Reba is available in neon-ish yellow, with 85mm of travel I beleive.

    i've thought about that, and i'd do it if this particular fork wasn't a tremendous pain and a huge mess to rebuild (the semi-oil bath damper is just nasty, and i'd prefer not to deal with it). and powdercoating is pretty expensive. if i decide to change the color, i'll probably just rattle can it myself (after it's disassembled, of course). That way, i can change the oil to 10wt at the same time to slow it down a bit.
