    Pick a color.

    As many of you already know I was the very fortunate grand prize winner of the SPEEDGOAT/MTBR giveaway, a spankin new Superlight 29er. Now it comes time to pick a color, what shall it be? You guys/gals pick it, I ride it.

    Thanks again to the many fine folks @ SPEEDGOAT and MTBR.

    Burnt orange is a much faster color.
    I'm enjoying my childhood way too much to ever give it up.

    AZ, take it from tones, dont even bother with the poll, theres nothin slicker than a black bike, they are just damn sexy.
    All my bikes are black and if i have the choice i'll make sure my next one is black too.
    Black will look smooth n slick, burnt orange aint cool.
    You can fit a black bike out with any colour bling or accessories and it looks the bomb, like gold, yellow, blue, white, green, what colours go with burt orange? answer= not alot..

    Answer me this, will you wanna have sex with a black or orange bike ?
    Case closed.......

    I must approve Tones suggestion. Along the same line that every man must grow a beard at some point in our lives - every man must also have at least one black bike in their stable.

    I have one. Tallboy C. That is my manly bike and a significant extension of my... Leg.

    Leg that is.

    Burnt orange is acceptable for metrosexuals and those who drive yellow Hummers.

    Chuck Norris also approved this statement.

    Black for sure.

    Does the black bike in the pic have an angle set headset? HT angle looks steeper than the peach one.

    Tone's is right, that's not burnt orange. Ugh. If that's truly what they're calling burnt orange than go with the black!

    If you have an active hunting season go orange
    If you are a poacher go black
    After looking over the black one I noticed the green lettering
    That's rep man
    Isn't that what its all about anyway?

    Don't sweat the color of the frame. A few minutes with cans of paint and you will be left with a golden original. Focus your energy on the color of the grips--paint won't stick to them to save your life.

    Burnt Orange - when someone comes up and says "that's a butt ugly color" you can always tell them "it was free!" LOL

    I picked black before looking at the pictures. It is a not-quite-burnt orange and I kinda like it. Ive always found burnt orange to be ugly on cars, though. But honestly, a vibrant neon orange is the best.

    29ers are a fad, black is easier to resell.

    Burnt orange.

    I had a black bike once. It was heavier than Tone's mom and slow as ****. Burnt orange is almost red, and everyone knows that red is the fastest color.
    Sometimes, I question the value of my content.

    Once we get the color picked out for you, should we expect to see another poll for which pedals you should use?
