    you've got red hubs, so why not go for a nice dark olive green? Red goes well with green.

    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    the white rims would go well too, and the green frames look good in the bush

    You can get some color inspriration from checking out some of the bmx forums for different color combos. I have seen a really hot looking tan color with purple parts. Never thought it would work but man it looked hot.

    For the life of me, I can't remember the name of one of the largest bicycle painters in the frickn country. I am thinking they were in CO but don't quote me. In any case, you can doo a google search for bicycle painters and check out different galleries to get some ideas as well. I did a search and what I was looking for did not come up though there were a few others that had gallaries on their sites.

    This is a more recent picture of the kids bike. It has more black on it now. But I like the tan/green???? color of the frame.

    I plan on repainting my bike one of these colors http://mtb.unrealcycles.com/catalog/item560.htm . You could do classic white with white wheels.

    My Indy Fab is getting a new powder coat as soon as the powder shows up. I decided on their yellow and green decals with this powder....

    Something to consider is your decals. Witha powder coat, decals are "top mount" meaning on top of the clear coat. I was initiall goin to go with off white, but figured that the dirt line that inevitably forms around the outside of these type of decals would look like crap, thus the darker color. Good luck!

    Ever Consider Ceramic

    Coating a frame with ceramic has several advantages over other finishes. It's very durable, comes in many colors with sheen of matte, satin, and semi-gloss, it won't fade, chip, peel, or flake. Ceramic is non stick and it only weighs a fraction of what either paint or powder-coat.

    And yes this is a shameless promotion of my product and services, but you need to know all your options.

    ^^ totally forgot about that option! I have a set of XTR M960 cranks that were modded/coated by Crazy8 and they damn near color match my frame! Definitely a strong option in my book!
