Hmm... personally I only think camo for guns looks good.

I've always wanted a flat or polished WHITE frame with black parts to give it a sharp contrast. But... too bad that's not on your list.

My cousins fs frame is like that, White frame and black rear triangle and stem and bar ect. I absolutely love the color combination.

I think mirror black would look really cool. But the amethist is kinda money and would give it a really unique look.

mirror black would look insane. whatever you choose, hook us up with some pics when its done.

amethist would be my second choice because no one will have the same color bike as you.

how about candy red with flat black rear triangle. i think, shiny rust/orange with flat black rear triangle would also look cool. from the color diagram point of view, red and black combination gives you the most contrast and makes it the most striking.

I like the white that's why I went with white for my frame. I say Mirror black frame, gloss blue linkage bars.

I'm not really that fond of going with 2 colors. however, If I can make the 4 link out of aluminum, I might just polish it and coat the main part of the frame candy apple red or mirror black.

Go with the red. Black is so 2004.

Red (particularly red ano) is the new white - just remember, you heard it here first.
