Help deciding Paint Scheme

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Help deciding Paint Scheme

OK, this will probably be painful for me by asking. Anyway, have decided on a version of one of these. Probably a little more understated and quite frankly interested in a blue and red scheme. The Red and Blue is one I have posted and it is Team Mack Racing design. Incidentally, I had purchased the frame from a member of Team Mack and always enjoyed the appearance and would of enjoyed the ride; but, a little big for me.

I personally love a good red and blue combination - with a little silver and black as well.

I had asked a week ago about a design and really didn't get a great response. The three pictures are a bit over the top. I guess I am gonna have to look at your combination.

Rad, I owe you one. I read the post when your Trek was done and had the same concern on my wheels. I recently bought a set of Aeroheads wtih the blue powder coat. I was thinking of taking the powder coat off. Can I steal part of your idea? I like the frames I started this thread with; but, I am afraid after time, I will kinda get bored with it. I am going crazy trying to figure the scheme out and when I am looking at the pics, I always come back to the red and blue Waterford. The only other issue that I thought could be improved was the point where the red and blue meet and John Slawta said the same. On the Waterford, it almost looks black. Slawta has a bike on his website that a guy painted one side blue and the other red and where the colors meet there is a purple haze. I guess that would solve my dilemma. This is driving me crazy. Slawta will be re-painting. His work appears top shelf as my frame that I am re-painting is perfect; except for a scratch on the top tube that I did when opening the box, I just have a hankering for a red and blue or red and yellow paint job. He likes to go wild and I am still thinking more understated and still different.
