    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    AZ we should all have such a dilemma.
    Put it this way if Burnt Orange and Black were to meet in a dark cold canyon, Burnt Orange would kick Blacks ass.

    One more vote Burnt Orange.

    I went with black. I like burnt orange but that looks more like orange sherbet. Is there a Pantone number I could get? That might make me change my mind. Tell those feeble limbed doofus' from GR to vote. I suspect they hardly leave their mothball smelling confines.

    Since I'm new to this forum, I have a questions about polls here at MTBR. Are they binding? Polls at GR are binding but only members with 5k or more posts are counted. Noobs and aliases are dismissed. It can make polls confusing to the outsider but the members know which side wins with a glance.

    No matter I'm going to vote anyway. Orange is the better of the two but I'm biased since I'm a surveyor I have a natural affinity to orange or flo green. If it was a car, I'd vote black.

    24 hour poll, I want to ride the thing this calender year. I think Tone's will get over it, although I'll probably never hear the end of it.

    +1 black

    According to the interwebz there are more cool things that are black than burnt orange. And if its on the interwebz, it must be so.

    I don't care what color. I just voted to even the poll. I'd like to see it come out in a dead heat and AZ still has to choose for himself.

    If I win the lottery in 45 min, I'll buy you one in the other color so you don't have to decide.

    Perfect. That'll give me a reason to go ride with him. Wouldn't have to bring my bike since he'd have an extra.

    So I vote Orange.
    I had a black bmw I was fond of though, and a Hemi Cuda convertible triple black.

    I used to have an orange SC back in the day. Was nice and then I wanted to upgrade the fork. This is around when everyone switched to making white forks. Put a nice white FOX on it then sold the bike 2 weeks later. The bike looks like total azz with a white fork, like some freaky circus. It will not end well and you will have to keep guys from hitting on you, but you might swing that way.

    If you read my post I told him to get black and voted for orange
    You can't always believe the poles
    He probably won the lottery and this is all moot

    Do you wish to chance your vote to black? If so it will be noted and the results adjusted accordingly.

    It matters
    If you have a white fork put me down for orange
    If you have a black fork go black unless the rest of your kit has allot of red in it, than go orange
    That is my final answer
