Need to choose a new color for my bike!
2003 Jamis Eureka 14"
Marzocchi DJ II 130mm
Hayes mechanical breaks with 6" rotor
Truvative Riserbar DH 710mm
Woodman Spiky Comp pedals
Now with rockring instead of a 44T big ring
Here it is:
Pretty sexy, but it's time to restyle the frame... I'll call it 'Le Porc', so tell me, what color would you paint it to (try to match the new name, but don't suggest the pink )
And here is the first version of Le Porc decals:
oh shit here comes the ground!

I'd go with metallic copper.

Well, everyone knows pork is the other 'white' meat, but this should give you some idea as to color/ do note the delicate veining and the marbled lard texture with swirly skin fat:
Now, of course, if you pick 'Cochon' as a decal instead, you can go with a really good crackling, comme ça:
and an apple round the headtube.
For my own part, I'd likely go with 'sanglier' and try to get the fuzz and tusks on the fork right, but then I always have been insecure in my machismo.

BTW, snow_slider, I absolutely love metallic copper as a color, only surpassed IMHO by mid-'70s BMW bronze. Black decals on copper look like tarnish, though; the most proper contrast being with bronze, silver or delfts blue/white.
