Right now I am hating this trans red on my BTM and the chrome forks and bars.. so I am thinking of getting it sprayed flat red at some car place or something, too lazy to do it myself plus I have money to spend...

But should I go flat red and chrome and shit, or should I do like flat red with silver splatter like Broc did with his frame? Ughh I am so lost.

Also, I am thinking of getting chrome cranks and going all black wheels, going to keep this shadow in the front, and getting a federal coaster laced to whatever rim is on the back.. or should I just get an all new back wheel?

So tl;dr...

Frame:
-Flat Red, Chrome Forks/Bars
-Flat Red w/ Silver Splatter

Wheel:
-Federal V3 w/ Whatever rim...
-Federal V3 w/ Birdcage

Woah! To much and to little info.

You need to figure out what you like colorwise, is it the red you don't like or the chrome?

Also i would suggest the birdcage over the whatever rim. unless you find out the whatever rim is a ribcage or 7ka

I think your bike already looks dope what I did with my frame is went to a whole other color. I think you'll be more satisfied with a completely different color

Aha, I am tired of all the shinyness, I want more flat.. but I saw a guy with a flat red frame at a local park, with chrome bars and flat red forks.. so I figure if I go flat red frame, chrome forks, bars, cranks and seatpost, then black everything else, it would be pretty decent..

So it is just kind of do I want to do a silver splatter, do I want to do a full wheelset, and do I paint it myself or professionally? My moms bestfriends boyfriend paints decals on cars and stuff so I imagine he would paint the frame if I payed for the shit to do it.. he has proper airbrushes and shit too.

Paint it flat red then! you answered your own question sir!

The splatter could look rad depending how you do it!

Trans blue would look nice I think.

Do the josh betley rosenthal paint method thing, that would look badass on a trans red frame

I say no splatter, but personally I think it looks like the bike is beat to shit when it is splattered.

I like the idea of trans red and chrome, honestly I would run that myself.

When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same, out there for the fun of it, the challenge of progression, and the personal accountability we have for the results we get. There are no teams to let down, no coaches to scream about a missed pedal, and no obstacles that cannot be overcome.

Cover your frame in glue, pour a box of fruity pebbles on it, and then clear coat it. Badass.

Oh man...

hahahaha

Put a bunch of random photos on a frame and clear over it.

Eric Holley once did that with Porn I heard.

There IS such a thing as translucent white. It's called Candy Ghost White. I bet you could make it look like you spilled your cereal on your bike.
