    Bring back purple!

    I'm sure how appropriate this thread is, but if you like purple... speak up.

    I'm a big fan of purple. I would love to see Chris King bring back purple to their entire line up. Purple hubs, purple headsets, and the new purple bottom brackets.

    If you like purple, and want Chris King to do purple again email them. Make it known to them there is a market for such a color.

    I just did. Hopefully other purple lovers will do the same.

    I suggested to King that they do a limited run of turquoise and 3DV a year or so ago. The fellow who replied back commented that he liked the idea, but they would have to consider it based on the market.

    Cane Creek obviously showed a 110 headset in 3DV at interbike. Still not listed as an available color on their site.

    I'm not really a HUGE fan of 3DV, but I like it. I fell into a 3DV phase recently kind of as an afterthought. I posted a question here asking where all the 3DV and Turquoise parts had disappeared to since you really don't see them as often as you might expect. For whatever reason that triggered a desire to build up the McMahon as a 3DV nightmare. It's getting there.

    My brother had a teal Rockadile years ago with purple EVERYTHING. It looked cool as hell in 1992, One of my friends had it in his shed and I saw it a while back and thought oh no... That thing is hideous.

    rad. an opportunity to post this pic yet again. the new chromag bars (granted, 30" o/s riser bars may have limited interest / relevance amongst the vintage crowd. nevertheless: cool!).

    I used to have a bell helmet that was purple and everyone would laugh when I went out for a ride "Hey nice PURPLE HELMET!!!!"

    The helmet had a sudden crash and was returned using the crash replacement. Talk about feeling like a D#ck Head, what was I thinking?

    True story.
    There are no "mistakes"; only learning curves.

    I saw a green Niner single speed with purple Ringle Zooka and other purple parts on it at the local bike shop, recently. As much as I hate purple and 29ers, it looked good.
