Colour Scheme suggestions?

Postby richsieb » Tue Dec 18, 2012 18:21 pm

Got this Claud Butler Milano 2012 a few months ago http://www.flickr.com/photos/91298321@N08/ (it's an old picture taken the day I got it, so it was taken before I even knew there was a way to take a picture of a road bike wrongly :lol: Also it's lost the numerous reflectors, toe clips etc., It's just too dark when I get home to take a new picture of it so this will have to do (but I digress))

Thinking about shaking it up in the New year with the colour scheme (because it obviously doesn't have enough colours!) with things such as bar tapes, hoods and saddles. But I'm trying to decide what colour scheme i should go for, I had the idea of red tape, black hoods to match the saddle but I'm open to see what others think as obviously there are a few suggestions with this bike's colour scheme.
Cheers.

Bead blast the original paint off and respraying would be a good start.

Yellow bar tape, red hoods and white saddle - sorted.
Yellow is the new Black.

Sounds a bit like the mcdonalds colour scheme, doesn't it?

Given the recent, but long lasting, fad for bikes with a black/white/red theme I find the green a bit more refreshing.

Each to their own.

Wonder if I could get by Gran Fondo resprayed........ :roll:
