    Go red for massive patriotism (if you live in the US, England, Australia or France that is).

    I think white would be a good option actually. Maybe I'm just a sucker for white, but I think with the blue wheels and white/blue fork that would look good. Get some blue components for added bling...

    Or, whaddayacallit.....rootbeer, that's it!

    That frame would look dope RAW and it's pretty easy to do. I just did it to my new 224. Got new white 40 lowers to go with it.

    Where did you get the 224?
    Or any Orange for that matter. It is late now but I didn't look where you live. In the USA?

    SO is UNREAL importing them? Or just selling them. I am on a work computer and the HTML coding is coming up when I view their site?

    Personally, if I saw an orange Glory on the mountain, I would definitely look and it would turn heads. Any other color recommended here...I would do what I always do on lifts...space out.

    Another RAW vote. I just did my SC Chameleon and am about to do my Chumba F4. It looks so good and scratches, dings and whatever dont matter. Its a shame to see a nice new paint job on a DH bike get chipped and sh!tty from normal riding. If you strip it, throw some chlorine on a rag and wipe er' down to get a nice, dark 'Works' look. very cool. Good luck with whatever you choose.
    Cheers

    Not a Glory, but yellow / orange seem to be the latest and greatest.

    My vote would also go for the Raw Al look.
    Ender your 224 turned out great, wish I had done my 222 before I built it up, too late now, would have to cut the brake cable (only disadvantage to internal routing!).

    Green, like the lime green posted above is one colour easy to get used to

    Here we go found a raw glory...(hope it works?)

    It does need some decals..

    That raw Glory is sick but, it needs a few stickers. btw, I weighed my bike before and after removing the paint it and I saved exactly 1/4lb. See, not only does it look cool but, you save some weight too!

    I like it, but it looks like a prototype of some sort. I you did this and you slap some stickers on it and it would be really nice.... but,

    My vote is for a black front triangle and white rear triangle with blue linkage and blue stickers to match the wheels.
