Take it out for a good ride on a muddy day and it won't matter what colour it is. Problem is with a colour like that, I wouldn't clean the bike.

I don't care about the looks. I care bout performance. In this case, it's bearable.

Guys, we're mtn bikers! How could we degrade ourselves from butt kicking fun mountain biking to duscuss how paint schemes are ugly. Shame on yall. Just kiddin.

Such sick bikes.....I know a kid that bought a Nicolai frame, long wait time for them, also some of the most expensive bikes. You guys sound like chicks though, who cares about the paint?! I bet it rides sweet, and youd never bust that thing.....I think the color would grow on you though.

Yeah the multi colour puke fest. Good thing their bikes are strong and last through abuse, otherwise they are tough to swallow sometimes.

Konas aren't that bad. They don't exasperate the problem by splattering several ugly colors on one bike.
