I'd hate to steer someone away from an interesting color, but the orange/yellow is bad. It looks bad even with deep section wheels. I'd say get the silver and add flair with saddle and bar tape.

can't really lose with the silver, its kind of conservative. I have the initial green-yellow and the fade is good... its a tad flashy tho.

Yea that's what I went with. It'll look dope with a gold KMC chain and whatever wheels I decide on.

I love the blue I have now simply because it's nice without being obnoxious like my green/yellow one was.. But that may have been the pink wheels haha.

That was pretty bold venturing forth looking like that... I get enough comments about the yellow-green.
Most recently: "The dealer must have seen you coming... and if they didn't they will now. hahahahaha."

I do think it's fair to ask what was the thought process that led you to this.... or was it instinctive?

That's legit.
LSD also might result in similar result.
