    I cant decide which color chilcotin i should get

    The Chilcotin has so many color options, that its so hard to decide!

    First i wanted the blue, Then i looked at some pics of the raw and i couldn't decide between them, then i saw a video with a day glow yellow, i put it into thought and then i was stuck with these 3 colors. Then i saw more pictures of the white and put it into consideration, Now i am stuck with 4 colors at 25% each, there isn't one that i like more than the other...:/

    I have taken the Ano Black out of question because its the same color as my current bike, and i want a change.

    i will be using a white fork, black wheels, Black and red handlebar, black stem, red rear derailleur, Silver XT brakes

    Help me decide!
    Did you have this problem? :/

    So you pose the question here....? Where you will get so many different responses that it will confuse you more??? Good luck with this.

    Buy whats available and which one you can get the quickest. You forget all about the color of your Chilco when you are riding something so fun.

    Definitely glow yellow. Looks nice with red bits. I dislike raw finish bikes.

    Very few white left available, would really depend on size and your location.

    This... It will tie in all your other colors, it won't chip, it's lighter, minor scratches can easily be buffed out.

    Here are the two colors you speak of, for your viewing pleasure. No raw pedals, though...

    I was in the same boat as you are,
    Too many blacks and the need for a different color itches me,
    Blue was out of stock,
    Ended up with another black

    Raw+purple=Awesome. Since you already have components I agree with just getting whichever frame is easiest.

    Yellow looks good with the red bits but even better with blue bits

    See if someone has a pic of the yellow after a few years of abuse...might help answer the question for you

    Blue with orange bits looks pretty killer if you ask me! (I would post a picture of my bike but I guess I don't have enough posts...)

    Would love to see it. One of my favorite combos. Vintage/classic KTM colors if you know dirt bikes.

    To the OP, I'm a color whore so I know my color choices. If you have some red going on either go with the day glow yellow or raw. Both will look killer!
