    white's cool for sure, it looks pimp brand new, but after a solid season of riding, it'll look like used toilet paper.
    apple green was discontinued a few years ago, and it looks like it's back. my friend used to have an apple green front triangle and a blue rear triangle on his bullit. the green looked nice.
    the trans colors are nice because where the paint is thicker, it's darker, so it has some depth to it.
    it's a personal decision.

    I'd say either...
    Gray
    Ano Black
    Apple Green

    Gray because I've seen it in real life and its super sexy.
    Black because matched with other black parts its the most stealth hardtail I've ever seen.
    Apple Green because its flagrant and flashy.
    Tony
    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    Lemme get this straight.....

    You are buying a frame and want us to tell you what color to buy ??? Don't you have a mind of your own?? Poseur .........................Who really gives a crap, if I was buying a new frame the last thing I would want to know is what you think about it. Careful not to scratch it. Dude.

    YaMon.

    i kinda like the trans red...

    but apple green would be quite unique

    I think no matter what you get, you'll love this bike so much that any color you choose will be the best color, if you know what I mean. It could be... brown and you'd love it anyway and think it was beautiful (no offense to any of you with brown bikes)

    does it matter?

    does it matter what color? no amount of anodizing or paint will cover the horrible look of that frame. you should look into baby $h*t green or dog $h*t brown for your best match.

    ninjas are cool.
    o.k. i guess it is a stretch to call it nuclearkron color.
    i like the color because i used to have a '76 VW scirocco that was metalic apple green. that was pimp, and chicks dug it fer sure.
