Definitely "B" with ghosted Cannondale decals on the down tube and seat tube... That's what I would do... Otherwise I would do a "B" and no decals.

White on black is always nice. You might have to redo the whole frame though. Otherwise the transition would look weird.

agree on the sidewalls. What does it look like all black with all the decals white, not just the main one?

I like B. Stealthy. Non-discript. Simple.

That is what I am planning on my project. But only down tube and tope tube.

Is stealth this year, last year or both? It's just too easy... Welcome back colour.

Who cares if stealth is this years, lasts years or the future. If the owner thinks it looks good should go ahead with it. I think it looks better than all the boring paint schemes. The only other thing I would consider is an artist to do a custom paint scheme on my bike, however that is $$$. I prefer not to ride my art pieces.

The owner has posted like 5000 other stealth builds of his so I propose making it offensively bright just for change's sake.

I guess I never mentioned that I'm an artist here in LA............ But I never hang my own art in my place, so I don't think I would ride my own art as well?

I agree with you and about an individuals taste regardless of "year" or "trend"

I was considering the same, but wanted some colour so am planning high gloss red with matt red decals or matt black decals. I reckon go for colour too, however if black floats your boat! 8)
