Ok guys,

I'm finishing up a few projects and getting ready to head to the paint booth. I'd like to respray my original rwracing mountian bike and am having a bit of a mental block on what colors to choose. I am interested in what some of your favorite paint schemes have been

The new squishy is going to be sprayed up in the classic Mountain Goat orange/green team colors, one of my favorites.

What catches your eye?

hmm, maybe I'm too traditional? Putting such a classic & easily recognised paint scheme as the team (orange & green) mountain goat colours on a non mountain goat. Is kinda like puttin a porsche badge on a ferrari!

rwracing is a rare enuff breed, go for the original team colours & be proud to have something so rare :D

all my 0.02 obviously ;)

If you're talking paint I'm a big fan of the work from Fat City or (pre-Trek) Klein.

Some of the Klein linear fades are super cool (like Jezzas sunburst linear).

Unfortunately reserved for Salsa only.

I do like some of the nice fades though, Klein are pretty cool.
