you have a very... pastel color scheme going so far. I like the purple crank (right) - it'd add some flash to the rig.

Green and orange make for a nice pumpking theme.

Green and red is very Christmas like.

I would say green and purple.

Add some yellow to the green and red and you start leaning away from Christmas and towards Rasta.

Red. Seems closer to the color temp of the green to me than the other two shades. It would stand out less I think and that may not be what you want.

Triple on a FR hardtail?

If I had to choose, I'd go red.
