    Turner color's (Black)

    As some of you may already know I will SOON be on a Sultan,and alot of guys here have been a great big help with my 50 million questions (you know who you are,and thanks again very much) My biggest problem now is WHAT F-N COLOR??? I do like very much the stock blue but am leaning towards black.Which leads me to my question,what is the difference between smoke black and the semi gloss black? If anyone has any pictures that would be great.Thanks in advance CF...

    Hopefully someone will post pictures. The best I can describe the Smoke black is sort of a translucent grey over metal. It looks killer.

    Someone posted some stunning pictures a while back that really captured it's look. Darned if I can remember though.

    congrats on the new scooter CF!


    Edit: here's some shots there's gotta be some more

    Here Ya go Fred

    Pix from my '07 Sultan (when I had it). Color is deeper than what you see in the pix. If I was to go custom color again this would be it.

    And I do hope you run the same sticker on the fork of your Sultan as you do on your Jabber.

    I like the black a lot, but the dark blue I saw some time ago is amazing.

    appling's old RFX that went to mtnbiker123 is hot as well and matches I9's.

    black smoke is very nice in the sun, it looks exactly like those pics. in the shade it looks darker and will resemble a darker less gray color.

    best of both...if you like the black smoker....

    gloss black is just that jet black. wet-black!


    oth, candy blue is an amazing color...

    All I have to add is once you pick a color make sure to get the 5.5 spot rockers and have the RP23 pushed. And if you are over 185 lbs switch to the low volume air can.

    I was on the verge of selling my Sultan because I couldn't get the rear end to feel good until I made those changes.

    My opinion anyway. Unless you are looking for a "firm XC" feel, in that case keep it stock.

    That smoke black is gorgeous! If I can't find a used RFX soon and end up going for new, I plan on getting one in that or Iron Glimmer Grey I think (unsure if one is more durable PC or not.)

    Push did a very very nice job on my RP23 and I am even able to run the HV air sleeve. This is the first Push product I am really impressed with. They did an excellent job, I must say.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    I do plan on going with the 5.5 rockers as for the low volume air can not sure what to do about that(I'm sure JC will fill me in). I was also thinking CCDB but I'd like to keep this bike down around 28-29 pounds.Thanks to all for your help..CF....

    So I guess that answer's the question about

    whether Nicolai is doing a 29er. I have a Sultan Frame waiting for the new Reba w/ maxle.

    Semi-gloss Black

    this is semi-gloss black (with the semi gloss rear-end too.) It's not shiny "wet" black at all, but nearly a matte finish - almost the exact finish on the Reba fork if that helps you at all. The smoke black looks almost like XTR gunmetal gray.

    Crap, I tried reading TA's posts with a Kiwi accent, and Tidy's with a Brit (not Cockney tho) accent, now I have to do a Ted Kennedy voiceover every time I read one of CF's posts?

    By the way, I sound like Steve Martin.

    Once you've seen the video of CF talking to his boys, it's impossible to not throw in the "Ted Kennedy" while reading his posts.

    I don't have the problem you have with the Kiwi or the Brit with TB and Tidy cuz I've never heard them speak But now that you mention it, I may be having this problem very soon

    That "smoke black" looks great as does the semi-gloss. Doesn't look like you could go wrong with either of those choices, Fred. I'd do either one of those over a gloss/wet black any time.

    Hope it's not inappropriate but I have a black sultan frame for sale on ebay. I just figured I would list it there. Didn't pay for an ad here since the listing expires in less than a day. Mine is a "flat black" too. I just saw this thread but thought maybe you would want the heads up.
