    who here has a SC with the front triangle/rear triangle in different colors?

    The bike builder on the SC site shows you can do this with the powdercoat frames but I never seem to see examples of newer bikes frames with two colors. Is it a pain to order them? Who has an example? Post pics!

    My wife's Superlight is black/grey, but that's only because we upgraded the original rear triangle to a disc-ready one. Grey was the only color available at time. No pics, but it's soon to be sparkle red, anyway. We'll have pics then.

    I have run a white front/black rear on a '05 Bullit.

    We sold a Superlight last year that was Yellow front/Liquid Blue rear.

    Guy in the shop has a Lime Green front/Black rear Heckler.

    here is mine this winter:


    I just stripped the front triangle raw for 2010 though, so it looks a bit different now.

    The heckler thread is a good place to find some eye candy as well.

    I have a 2009 blur lt with a green front/white rear, my shop told me to tell everyone it was a warranty, apparently SC is not that pumped on the split colors...

    Yeah, they usually included an up-charge for running the split colors.

    They will still do it for the PC colors......was never an option on the Ano colors.

    We did a few ano front triangles with fork matching PC rear ends through the shop I worked at. So it wasn't unheard of.

    Do it tastefully. Thats all I can say.

    Christmas colors is not that cool.

    and a orange front and a lime green rear on a nomad2 is definitely not desirable.

    I always thought that a Red Frame with Black Fork/Black Rear Triangle would look baller.

    White rear triangle with White Fork and their new Light Blue frame color would be dope as well.
