Every year the “hot” new mountain bike color seems to change. While trendy bike colors are meant to come and go, most of us have a favorite.
What’s Your Favorite Mountain Bike Color?
A sick paint color can make a huge difference in the look of any mountain bike.
I like gold accents on a black or blue frame.
As much as I like bright colored frames, I bought a black on black color scheme on my last MTB.. glad I did, because when theives recently got into my garage, the stole the shiney red, but way cheaper (1k) road bike and left my new, but dirty, not shiney looking 4k MTB hanging on the wall next to it.
My favorite, by far, is raw titanium. However, my XC 29er is black, while my enduro bike is what I refer to as ‘clown puke’.
Matte green or gray are my favorite. When I’m in the woods I want to look like a tree, or a lizard, or something else that’s supposed to be crawling in the dirt. My road kits are eccentric and obnoxious, but that’s because I want to be seen by the busy, distracted soccer moms in 4-ton SUV’s. In the woods it’s the exact opposite.
Black bikes and Black accents
No wonder why bicycles are so damn dull now a days
I have a black Framed Wolftrax Carbon fatbike with RockShox Bluto forks. Black rims, bars and grips. Looks like the MTB Batmobile! Very cool looking bike. I’m not a flashy guy and I don’t go for the bright or neon colors in bikes, clothing or gear. I’m also a hunter and fly fisherman so I think in more subdued colors as a rule.
Whatever it comes in stock. Brighter is better. Custom is even better. (Squid bikes.)
I would like to see what color-combinations were voted on.
Santa Cruz 2018 Bronson army green. Almost bought one. Regret I didn’t.
I have one red and one blue bike but bought both used. I prefer black and black on black looks so cool. Been a fan of the flat grey and raw titanium too. I like simple or plain. Easier to find upgrade parts that match bike or easy to add a little flare with grips or pedals.
I do think it is cool when someone takes time to do a whole color scheme matching multiple colors through parts/components, I don’t have the patience to track down the colors and never be sure when the part arrives it is not quite a match.
Multi colors are my favorite — think vintage 90’s schemes – with orange (or yellow/anything bright) features. Anodized components not required; bonus for CNC-ed parts.
Surprised by how popular black is – it’s so boring. I guess it’s the same as people’s preferences with car colors.
Black chrome or chrome for frame.
I do like the bright florescent colors, but I most like black with gold accents, especially if the bike already has a kashima fork.
Earth tone colors for me
Stop the grey and the black schemes. Bikes must have proper colours, except those special frames that can look a million dollars by just being aluminium polished.
For not so expensive bikes, Orange+Blue or Blue+White looks great for me.
For bikes over 5k, please start using those cherry, apple, whatever lacker or varnish you want, as Specialized and Trek are using in their most expensive bikes.
But for god’s sake, stop the dark dull schemes!!
any bike is cool anyway
