    Well I just went here, which looks well clever, and it tells me it’s ‘greyish turquoise’. Stupid computers, what do they know? Pah.

    It’s green, by the way. Teal isn’t a colour.

    But, but, but – that’s more than 100%!!

    I believe indigo was wedged into the spectrum so there were seven colours so it matched the days of the week for some biblical significance.

    ROYGBIV – That’s what I was taught

    Newton divided his color circle, which he constructed to explain additive color mixing, into seven colors. His color sequence including the tertiary color indigo is kept alive today by the Roy G. Biv mnemonic. Originally he used only five colors, but later he added orange and indigo, in order to match the number of musical notes in the major scale

    Yeah, it’s RGB, there’s three values of 0%-100%. So 100% red, 100% green, 100% blue is white, 0%R, 0%G, 0%B is black, and so on. Just divide them all by 3 if you need it to add up to 100%, it’s completely arbitrary.

    Total is 300% – white is 100% red, 100% green and 100% blue.

    Beige?

    That’s not a colour. It’s a lifestyle choice.

    In related news, cheers folks, I’m getting a Transition Supressor!

    (Once I’ve saved up for the damn thing, and moved house, and done all the other crap I need to do.)

    When did Bianchi buy Transition?

    Amusingly, scotroutes, you were actually bang on and first with the right answer, Transition call that colour teal. Still green though.

    Let’s not get started on ‘What colour is celeste?’ eh? We’ll be here all night…

    Why would you want a blue bike?

    Newton concluded that light is composed of coloured particles, which combine to appear white. He introduced the term ‘colour spectrum’ and, although the spectrum appears continuous, with no distinct boundaries between the colours, he chose to divide it into seven: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. Newton chose the number seven as this reflected the Ancient Greek belief that it is a mystical number due to the fact that there are seven ‘wandering stars’ and seven days in a week, a quarter of the time between two full Moons.

    Seems we’re all right. Days, musical notes and stars.

    Definitely a shade of green going by this

    Is that Mark’s Teal?

    It’s turquoise. Teal is a du….oh right, someone already said.

    The answer is shade of Ball and Bloody Farrow, otherwise the colour would not exist (beyond Yeti bike frames). I’m sure CFH and McMoonter have used this colour around the home to +/- one shade or other. 🙂

    I can settle this once and for all with an exact Pantone reference.

    Shall I get my swatches?

    What’s the dif between RAL and Pantone? genuine Q?

    Never mind all these percentages and Pantone numbers.
    The correct answer is: you are wrong, and your “missus” is right 🙄

    And finally the whole bloody point of the thread clicks into place 😆

    Minty is only allowed to buy green bikes.

    Sure, if your fancy-pants swatches do proper colours like ‘Green’ and ‘Blue’ without any of this ridiculous ‘Aquamacelezurroisealium pink’ bobbins.

    Professional opinion, green or blue? Go on…

    Wouldn’t it be simpler to get it in black?

    You mean very, very, very dark blue?

    The colour is green not blue.
    Does that help .
    I do have qualifications and experience to back up my opinion.

    Yes but…

    Minty is only allowed to buy green bikes.

    …and that’s mostly to stop me swapping 2nd hand bikes every other ride, so I’m not allowed to do respraying and whatnot. Got to be properly green all over too, not just stickers or details.

    To be honest, this is sufficiently contentious that I’m not sure I should go for it. If there’s a shadow of a doubt about whether or not it’s really green then I think I can’t allow it. Oh well, back to dreaming about that Yeti SB6C again.

    But that has bits of turquoise on the forks, and the seat rails 🙄
