    76 views and only 1 vote. Guess it's not a good question to ask.

    This question is personal for each rider, and since there is no right or wrong answer, there's really not much to discuss or to become informed about. So... crickets....

    If you intend to commute with repainted frame, then matte black and no stickers.
    If you want attention as you roam the city blasting Warrant's Cherry Pie from the boom box strapped to your h-bar, then candy apple red.
    No fuss with the MUSS

    I think that Candy Apple Red may be the coolest color ever. But not on my bike.
    I don't rattle.

    That sounds cool.
    Also red or rose matte or royal blue matte.

    No, just, no. CC is old hat.

    Matte burnt orange?

    Wanted the matte black F5, but none left over for my last year's savings pleasure. Just built my oldest a bike with a new '08 Rincon frame, it's matte olive and black... looks good. I'm thinking some kind of matte green could come off awesome.
