I'm aiming for slightly off. The pearl will only glint purple along the frame under certain angles, straight on it will look normal. Full DX is whats going on if I can get it all sorted.

Anyone know what size the seatpost is in this? I've tried a 31.6 which is way too big.
I'm thinking it's a 29.6 seatpost. Can anyone with this model confirm?

As for green A-stars e-stays, Maverick's got a nice repaint and re-decal job here:
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=122602

I've always thought purple or orange would look cool too, and maybe even switch some of the colors on the decals.

In this case, though, I think original paint and decals still look to be in really good condition, so I vote to keep it original until such time as the decals become faded, which the A-stars fluoro decals seem to do eventually.
