    Agree with the nice colour frame, everything else black approach.

    Polished alloy finishing kit looks kinda shit, Hope ano stuff is just vulgar.

    +1 on Trek schemes being really good at the moment.

    Rocky Mountain also reliably create some belters, modern and retro.

    I’m a fan of raw frames too, this is the best-looking bike to my eyes at the mo…

    This is one of my favourite custom paintjobs of recent times…

    I still quite like this paintjob on my full sus…

    I’ve always liked the solid red Trek Slash, I don’t know why, it’s not a particularly inspiring paint job, just always though it looked cool.

    You’re right there, those mk1 Slash’s looked lush. That red is really vivid in real life.

    I just went to check what the new one is like and it’s nothing special but I did spot this…

    I’d run one of those if I had Project One money.

    I’m into colourful frames. IMHO anodised bling looks tacky, I’d much prefer plain everything and then an interesting frame design.

    MTB could take a leaf from the snowboarding rule book – they love interesting designs, although you can still get subdued versions if you’re a shrinking violet. I guess there’s a bigger ‘canvass’ there, though.

    Also, this thread should really have more pictures. So for no particular reason, here’s an old Klein. I’m not particularly into retro bikes, but that’s a sweet colour combo.

    Red Blue White Ritchey for me too.

    y’all new around here? Into the 2nd page and no mention of binners’ P7?https://singletrackworld.com/forum/topic/colour-dilemma-lets-see-your-steel-hardtails-then

    Either this, bright frame with black components:

    I like really brightly coloured frames with minimal logos etc and all the components in black.

    Or, I’ve seen this recently a few times. A Black, grey, raw frame; with some red touches. Rockshox red, DT swiss red wheel decals, red grips OR brakes, maybe red stiching on the saddle.
    There are some raw Birds like this, and I’ve seen a few others including a Ti hardtail done similarly.

    I think my 2017 Nukeproof Mega has a great colour scheme:

    Unfortunately as can be seen on this thread all you get nowadays is a single colour with some computer drawn graphics on, so sorry I can’t get exited about a yellow bike with the manufacturers name in black type on the Dow tube!


    @b230ftw
    – I won’t take umbrage at your comment, honest – the yellow Shand is mine and what you don’t know is that the yellow I went for (after weeks of deliberation) was a custom colour, hand mixed to my spec! It doesn’t look it in the photo, but it’s a really soft, mustardy colour that was christened “Curry Yellow” when I went for it – I could have had anything (fades, panels, etc), but that was my personal choice – and if I get another Shand built (and I might next year), I’m having it the same colour 😂

    Each to his own and all that!

    It wasn’t a dig at your bike in particular, just bikes in general nowadays.

    As off putting names go, curry yellow is right up there with pus green and vomit beige. 😀
    But I like it, I think yellow with matching forks is a good look.

    @Bream: You win the award for ‘most interesting bike on the Forum today‘, hands down.

    Personally, I think the paint (or is it a wrap like DyedBro?) is super unique.
    The wheels though – they give me strong ‘fixie scene 2008’ vibes, and even as an avid fixed gear rider, that’s a hard pill to swallow!

    Bold work there @Bream

    It’s factory paint on the S-Works frameset so can’t take credit for the design. But the build I can and yes those wheels are a little different but having raced them hard this year I can say they are very impressive & light.

    That Trek customisation thing has some nice colours.
    I’m getting this (when I get that unexpected windfall)

    Trek are doing some great paintjobs now 🙂 Maybe they inherited them from Klein 😉 The grellow and blue Klein is classic too – I had a grellow and purple Yo.
    The sky blue and orange Production is pretty too – is that a standard colour ? I’ve seen other bikes, maybe from DBS in exactly the same colour pattern.
    Never really liked bare finishes

    Those Trek project one custom paint prices are insane, you’re better off getting it custom sprayed to exactly what you want at fat creations etc, the waiting lists are the real killer though.

    Maybe more paint effect than a colour scheme and a tired old pick but these

    (as seen in the worst colour schemes thread)
    were just brilliant imo. Both paint and graphics.

    Salsa have done some good fade paint re-issues recently.

    Isen have done good work with the laquer fade effect –
