I wouldnt have guessed the green anodized would have worked on this color. But it really looks nice. Very clean looking ride. Thumbs up

It does look nice, it just looks so fresh I would have been shocked if it wasn't a repaint.

Honestly I don't think it's a very nice job. The fade area is much too short - looks very simple.

Here is an example for an orginal Aqua fade paint job, if you compare those, you know what I mean. Sorry.

Well, like you said originally, Ringle made the stem. Everything Ringle made was available in green, or actual both the green colors they used, which I think were Cammo and then KGB green. When I originally built my IF I used all green Ringle parts, though I eventually sold the stem seatpost and rear hub to my friend Tyson to build up his Chameleon Yo! Little did I know I would one day want all those green parts form my own Chameleon Yo!

I like both of them. The old, original fade is stunning and I really like the sharp, vibrant contrast of colors on ameybrook's. Now, ride the hell out of it!
