    Leave it alone and spend the money it would cost to paint it on some other upgrade to the frame.

    I'd sooner spend the money on other upgrades but if you have your heart set on painting it, I'd match the color to the graphics on the frame.

    I'm not sure what upgrades I could buy for the cost of a $4 can of spray paint.

    If all you're going to do is spray paint it, I would paint the seat post clamp, headset and/or spacers, maybe the rear hub the same color orange. Then you have a well "flared" bike. You can trick out any bike with a lil spice tastefully. I'd rather compliment a bike with combo colors than all the same.
