    The PP Shan I like the look of is out of stock in blue and they only have gloss black (with silver accents). While some black bikes look good this one I think is a bit… boring πŸ™

    As I have the colour/design sense of a dead camel and can’t come up with any good ideas, inspire me with pictures of black bikes with other colours added to make them more interesting! Anodised components, enduroyellow wheels, stickers, whatever looks good and not too tacky.
    Black & silver? I dunno…

    Probably not quite what you want but this is my road bike.

    If you look really carefully you can see red on the bar end caps, red brake pad adjusters and red writing on the water bottle πŸ˜†

    This is my black Cyclocross bike

    Not really what you asked for but this is my PP Oka when it was built up. It’s the ‘classic’ paint job, probably similar to what you’re looking at. It was 26″ then.

    I did find it boring colour-wise and have since changed it for the Shan 917.

    The joy of black is that any colour you like will work. Just be subtle with it, my Solaris is gunmetal with orange headset/bottom bracket/seatclamp/chainring, everything else is black.

    My black and blue KM Ops. It doesn’t leave me black and blue though as it very comfortable πŸ˜†

    Not mine and not exactly what you asked for, but I just love this look:

    Wait for the paintjob you want. It’ll always annoy you otherwise.

    I’ve got a black bike with some orange/gold bits, but I mustn’t think it looks that great ‘cos I haven’t got any embeddable pics of it.

    Black with a smattering of red (excuse the mismatched wheels – that’s been sorted now!)

    I went with all black except for pink grips and a slight hint of mud brown.

    As I have the colour/design sense of a dead camel

    Play it safe, go with the black. Otherwise you might end up with something that looks like this…

    There is no legitimate reason to but a PP without an epic race team inspired paint job. And you know this inside, which is why you’re struggling.
    Wait for it, you’ll regret it otherwise.

    ^this. The old gulf colours nearly made me throw money at PP just to hang it on the wall.

    Let’s try this another way.

    ‘i want a Shelby Cobra, but they haven’t got any in stock with bonnet stripes, only plain lime green ones, has anyone got any pictures of lime green Shelby Daytonas?’.

    This thread should never have happened.

    Here’s my old Black & White Soul with red highlights, which I thought looked pretty good:

    But I totally agree with submarined on this one, don’t buy a PP without an epic colour scheme, as every time you see another, you’ll look at yours and it’ll make you feel like you settled for the ugly sister….

    Some nice bikes here!

    Trouble with PP is that the fancy colour schemes are always limited edition.

    I asked them when the blue Shan is coming back into stock and they said “NEVER. MUAHAHAHAAA” or at least it felt like that πŸ™

    It does seem like a good bike regardless of colour… maybe I could get it powdercoated or something… aargh

    Parlee Z1 under construction, mainly black carbon everything but had the forks and seat post custom air brushed with some colour then clearcoated so you can still see the carbon weave underneath, very happy with the results.

    Will a will have Vittoria Corsa G+ tans fitted soon also.
