Help With Colors On New Kilo Tt Pro; If Interested

Hi

We will have a new Kilo TT Pro with Tektro frt brake, sugino crank, Alex rims with eyelets and
Frame made from True Temper Platinum OX

Current Kilo TT colors of Black and Green sell great

When we order new Pro version any ideas on colors?
I sure would appreciate any input on colors that you would find most attractive

Will come as frameset also without decals
Complete bike will have decals, of course
sizes: 47,50,53,57,60,63 -- all C-C -- so lots of choices in that area

thanks
mike

I second the rust and white. I'd also like to see a nice cream color, probably more so than the white.

You got a ETA on the frame sets? Price range? Thanks.

Oh and I vote Sea Foam Green. Pastels are "so hot right now".

How fancy can you get? I really like candy or metallic colors. I also like a royal purple or violet.

Seconded. I would love to see a 3Rensho blue. In fact, I would probably buy such a frame.

Will these be available as stand-alone frame sets, or only as complete bikes?

Well, it sounds like it's going to be the same geometry with a much higher grade steel, and spec'ed with better components.

Taken from here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_colors

Cornflower Blue
Orange-Red
Olive
Beige

If you don't mind me asking, how much is the bike going to go for?
