Need to paint my mtb frame - pick your favorite paint scheme!

Which do you prefer? (the one with no number is 5). Any other suggestions or ideas that might look good?

Whatever looks best to you don't farm it out to us it is your bike.

Me I would find someone capable of doing a Klein style paint job but that is me. That Team Storm paint job is fire and it doesn't hurt that Tinker Juarez rode one. The ones you have just don't do it for me.

Thx.. yeah the Klein Stuff is less my style.. the cheep Chinese bike frames have copied that style over and over it seems... anyway tastes are different. I think I like of them pretty much equally so my goal was to see if some are strong favorites and then take it from there - all good :-)

2 or 4, but lose that black triangle up by the seat collar and paint it like the rest of the frame.

If you go with 4, it would be even better if you could fully match the fork color.

While you are at it, I would repaint the orange coil. Looks kinda goofy with what are otherwise subdued and tasteful color schemes (2 and 4). If you go with 2, paint it to match the fork. If you go with 4, paint it black.

That is my $0.02

Post pics when you are done.
