    Orange Czars a'plenty. Black frame, not so much

    Seems black is the popular color, at least a 30 day wait. Orange available right now. Some pics the orange looks great whereas others it looks not so (in my opinion). But the black looks rockin' in every pic, every angle. Guess if you're spending that much and it's after race season in your neck of the woods the month wait isn't a deal breaker.

    I can only imagine waiting a year or so for a custom one-off bike/frame.

    The orange looks great in person, but black will always be the new black!

    It may also be that the first couple of production runs were in orange. And that the black frames are finally making it here on the slow boat from (the Republic of) China. Seems like almost all of the Czar builds, up to recently, were orange, and the first run or two of the black frames are already sold out. Which may be the reason for the weight. I waited for a couple of months from the time I saw people posting up the orange frames to when mine came in.

    All I can say is that the wait for the black frame is worth it. I love it. It's unlike any other carbon fiber frame I've seen. You get to see exactly how the frame was put together.

    I went with Orange to be different. There's a ton of Raw Carbon out there..but the Orange, lots of comments on the trail.

    Get what you want.. but the Orange is sweet!

    Yep, as of last week there was a medium and large frame available from the dealer. I chose to wait for the black Large. My friend was tempted to get an orange since it is truly a nice looking frame, but he ordered a black Medium from the same shop. It was tempting to have that orange frame in hand and riding, probably by today, but it's only a few more weeks.

    Cool pic Lee. You're such a tease. They've got a large orange at the Enve wheels tent at the Interbike Dirt Demo I hope to throw a leg over tomorrow.
