Default Colour suggestions

just what it says. I am going to have a Yo Eddy frame and fork re-painted. It will be built up with purple ano King headset, Ringle bottle cage and CBR cranks. So I would appreciate input on frame and sticker colour combinations.

Well, Team Violet comes to mind.... Or Leslies purple, given your 3DV components.

Otherwise, you could do about anything....

Cheers, bt

Don't do white! Seriously, the 2 colors mentioned above would look nice.

I'm looking at getting my Fat powder coated. Would anybody happen to know the closest RAL color number for Team Violet?

I was thinking of a colour to that would complement the 3DV bits... Not to match it. Thanks for the suggestions.

Pale greens look good with 3dv. Silver does too.

That's what I am talking about.....

The green makes the 3dv 'pop'. The silver (as seen on my current ride) blends....
