    A couple of guys here have it a poke around will find their posts. One at least is in the 'Post Your Rush' thread. It seems to be the more popular option, which much like taking Tangerine for the Rush 600, choosing Blue for the Rush 3000 will make you a little more unique. :P

    I am custom building a Raw with black tint 3000 frameset. You can see pictures and how the build is going RIGHT HERE.

    Good job!

    I am building up a BTC frame also. I originally was going to go with the blue with yellow glow decals myself, but after hearing that the BTC looked great and then seeing a few pics of it in the "Post your Rush" thread, I settled on the BTC. Seeing the bike in real life has been even better than I thought. So I am very happy with my decision - now if I could just get the rear brake to quit dragging so I can ride it......
    One of the the big reasons I like the color is because it looks quite a bit different indoors vs. outside in the sun vs. at night with reflective decals.
    Your preferences may vary of course

    Here's mine

    The decals are blacked out in the sunlight. I absolutely love my color, but I probably would have chosen blue if I had a choice (unique?).

    I'm a Raw kind of guy, there is something beautiful to show the material the frame is made of... I wouldn't trade my Galvanized Prophet for any other colorway!

    I agree that the Raw finish is awesome, especially when you see it in person at the shop everyday like I do Kerkove's here. It definately will grow on you.

    As said earlier, Blue does seem to be a little on the "unique" side. I think that I have seen pictures of one maybe?

    Because it has 2 human legs instead of a Lefty perhaps?

    Don't trust these guys, the BTC is the color to go and they know it.
    Blue may be nice, but BTC is pimpin' - sorry my Prophet received some "muddy hyperhighlight"
