If you're going to take off the decals anyways, why not paint the fork too? All white wouldn't be bad though.

How do you feel about painting the frame the same color blue as is in the fox decals?

matte dark gray. or matte blue. if you decide to keep the decals....

if you want to take the decals off.......candy red frame, with all white fork...red hubs, red rotors, and white rims...with Pana Fire X tires with red side wall...

no offence, but in my opinion, all white (whiter frame, fork, tires, wheels) defuses the contrast and makes the bike not so attractive to the eyes...

i seriously don't think that fox fork can get any sexieR. love the white and blue, especially on the new anthems...
(from mtnbiker66)


i guess if you added a saddle, grips and some hubs of the matching colors, i'd go crazy. that bike is already on my dream list.
