It's not easy being green, but the Haro would look supreme in green!

Hrm, any of those colours would work with black rims, chainset and finishing kit but IMHO wouldn't look so good with silver. Any way everybody knows red bikes are faster, :lol: so that's where I'm voting.

The green pops but what about a kleinesque type fade of a few colours?
