There is something really cool about your girl's hair color. Could that be inspiration for frame paint?

For those wanting to see some very cool bikes once/currently owned by the proud father of that baby, take a peek at www.45ronin.com.

Shameless plug for my bro.

Thumbs Up

Something I have always wanted to see was a Team Violet to a dark pearl metallic purple fade. I like the idea of a Zig Zag style paint scheme with Team violet in the back 2/3rds and a chrome Corvette yellow up front (with fork), and yellow/black decals. Would look sick!

In a couple of years, I'm going to be looking for an XS frame, myself, so I'm interested in seeing where this goes. I might try to repaint the new Strider in Team Violet.

now that does sound interesting. i appreciate the thoughts. chameleon fade as always been one of my favorites. but a team violet fade could look dope too.

Colker chimed in with a Grello suggestion. i like that as well.

keep them coming.
