- Can you have too much yellow & black?
So contemplating swapping the graphics on my forks and shock on the Mega.
Currently looks like this:
Thinking of putting these on fork & shock:
What do STW think?
If anyone can change the colours in Photoshop that would be appreciated.

Personally I’d have plain/stealth black on both. The bike looks ace as it is. No need to fully bumblebee it 🤣 oh and I’m not techno clever enough to do a photoshop jobPosted 1 month agoTraceySubscriber

If you’re running Hope hubs then it has to be MORE yellow & black of the full on hornet effect.Posted 1 month agomatt_outandaboutSubscriber
Our old Radon Slide was half and half yellow/white.

To me, that bike has just the right amount of yellow. I’d be getting rid of the decals from the forks and the shock.Posted 1 month agoNobeerinthefridgeMember
And what does that rear guard actually achieve? 🤣Posted 1 month agokimbersSubscriber
Do itPosted 1 month agokayak23Subscriber
Less is more, is so often true. It would look tatt, imho.
Go the other way and accentuate the colour by keeping everything else on the down-lo.
All your yellow accents flow down and to the rear. That rear guard takes it vertically and messes up the line of things. Swap it with the front one so it follows the same line visually and fit a plain black one on the rear.
You could of course go the other way and get the riding kit too 😂

That rear guard saves the pivot bearings from being caked in mud. I did the same to my mega. It makes a big difference.Posted 1 month agotwonksSubscriber
Nice bike. I think it needs a totally black rear guard and the yellow on the swingarm needs to be a bit slimmer and about 75% of it current size but, the forks deffo need the yellow stickers.
Stealth would be nice but after a while you’ll feel the need for some colour.Posted 1 month ago
Think I might go with stealth instead of the yellow.
Good point about the rear guard – now you’ve pointed out it breaks up the lines it’s messing with my head……Posted 1 month agoeasilyMember
Go for it. And get a chain like this:steve_b77Member

Judging by the Dortmund fan I saw on the ski slopes last year dressed head to toe in BVB gear as well as his snowboard and goggles I would definitely say that yes you can have too much yellow and black.Posted 1 month agochakapingSubscriber
Would be too much IMO.
Keep as is or stealth if it bothers you.Posted 1 month agocynic-alSubscriber

Do the forks yellow and black. I did it in an old Mega TR and it looked good.Posted 1 month agodoomanicSubscriber

Stealth the rear and the guards, what about gold on the forks to match the saint hose banjo, yellow or stealth would look good on the forks too.Posted 1 month ago
I pulled the white stickers off my forks straight away and put stealth ones on that came with it, now running orange ones with orange frame, looks awesome.senor jSubscriber
I agree with stealth and change the rear guard for a black one.Posted 1 month ago
What you need are lurid pjs to wear whilst riding it.:-)timbog160Subscriber
Great looking bike. I want to say yellow, but I think stealth will be better…Posted 1 month agorogermooreSubscriber
