For the bike or the decals?

Was planning on getting the decals done in solid white with a black pinstripe to outline them. Have emailed Slik who did my Tazer decals, but they're being a bit slack in getting back to me.

Yeah the whole bike. Not too keen on either colour.

Fair enough - I reckon they look ace in baby blue.

I used to love Barrecloth's blue SX like he rode in Roam. I think it was a factory colour elsewhere in the world on the later models.

If it was more darker, it would be nice.

I'm going for a slightly bluer colour than that...as soon as I can get my decals reproduced.

No...just going to look at a load of samples until I find the right one.

I know what colour I'm looking for...just can't quite describe it. Does that make any sense at all?

This color for sure! VERY slightly darker would look PIMP on a DH bike.

Probably not far off that actually!

With white and black decals. Peachy!
