Following on from my post for the best steel frames out there today my next question relates to the colour of that frame. What, in forum member's opinion, is the best colour for a MTB frame? Personally I like white, orange and the Howies blue on Curtis frames looks cool.

Trevor.

PS. I do like the green on Genesis frames but I am told they have sold out for the year!

I have to say the best colour is white!

Though the grey of the Sanderson frame is good too!

White and metalic lime green colours looked good on MTB's, the best colour I have seen is Ameybrook's Lavadome in metalic lime green, it's stunning colour. (see link below)

Go for a proper retro colour, matt black like an early '90s Orange Prestige/Clockwork. Classy.
