After reviewing some of the top entries in the WW bike of the year contest, I am blown away by the orange Klein and the black Canyon with orange highlights. Visually arresting color combination!

I would love to see more examples of bikes that feature orange as a primary or accent/highlight color -
orange with white , orange with black, orange bolts and bits, orange on carbon, orange steel, orange hudz, orange decals on wheels, orange tires, maybe some orange circus monkey hubs with black rims, anything you have I would love to see as I contemplate building up my own orange dream machine.

Thanks!

Still not built with everything I'd like (but I guess it's every WW's concern)...

But I absolutely love my frame. Hope to bring it below 16lbs for spring.

Louis :)

Had not noticed this thread until OP asked me to post my orange themed Merckx AX.

Frame is '95 with later threadless carbon fork and '06 grey Centaur group. Bar & stem are Ritchey.

I started picking up orange bits earlier this year. Started with the tires - Pro Race 3. Then saw the Circus Monkey hubs and rebuilt the wheels - 32 spoke Mavic Open Pro's. Bar tape took a while to find - Bontrager. Orange is a hard colour to find matching parts, but other than the cage which is too red, this works pretty well.

Not my most expensive or lightest bike - but certainly a favorite.
