Vassago Bandersnatch

This summer im thinking of building a 29er. I originally was gonna get a used gary fisher paragon, cuz my uncle has one and i like it. And then i came across the vassago bandersnatch, read all the positive reviews, and changed my thinking. Brand new under $500. The only problem i have is picking a color. All i have found is silver, black, and orange. I saw the 2008 Bandersnatch which is a sweeet looking neon green called "reactor green" i think. Any ideas of where i could find this?
Thanks

FWIW the Orange is bad ass.

You'll probably have to buy it used, if you can find one. From what I remember they sold all of the 08 Bandersnatch frames, which led to a huge backlog of preorders for 09 bikes. You could call www.addictivecycles.com and see if they can help you. I got my Jabberwocky frame through them.

If you don't mind dropping a few more bucks Vassago does a custom paint program with a ton of colors... at least they used to. Haven't heard if they're still doing it but that may be something to look into. If not it's not too much money to get one painted if you have to have it a certain color.

Cool, thanks. I also saw the Voodoo Dambala is right at about the same pricepoint. Any major differences?
