    I don't get why people are going so crazy for White. People are so easily victomized by "FADS". last year was pink, now white, whats next purple!? I'm glad I'll never fall victom to this dispicable behavior, I'll be sticking to my Black bikes!

    Black is still the best!

    As far as bike parts it's only a question of race in regards to bearings...

    (badum - tss!)

    As far as being exclusive to certain colors of fork, I think it's "chromatist" or something..

    :think:

    No, it has to go through the entire cycle first.

    Silver, then anno purple, then anno blue, then rasta, then yellow, then red, then cal-trans orange and then we get back to root-beer. Trans blue and trans red come after that.

    Over half of males are colorblind to some extent.

    The AM1 was definitley not green.

    that was the absolute worst color i have ever seen on a bike product. my god. that yellow Manitou looks better than that AM.

    and i agree, white is devine. not diggin' the white bars that Deity has, though. white bars look weird.

    Ok.. Let's see...

    1) White 66RC2X, don't know.. Safe to say it won't be until after the first of the year.

    2) White lowers.. Don't know... Hell, we are just getting the forks...

    3) 05 All Mountain 1, Actually looks pretty good on my Enduro...

    4) I can't believe Krispy hasn't said anything yet... That guy had the Roco post up before I got Go-Ride's order into the warehouse...LOL

    You rave about the R7's weight like is a big step in a new teritory, but yet (C)ROCK-SHOX had a 2.5 pound Sid a few years ago.:rolleyes:

    What I wanna know is what has taken manitou so long to catch up, while XC is their main field(w/all the new claims of great new suspension damping systems), w/the SX, Axle, Mars, Black... Manitou had a great proto. a few year ago(that hot green corbon inverted XC fork), that could have led to a great production piece, but they just show it to us to tease us, then the abandon it intasntly. Atleast when Marzocchi came out w/a simmilar piece(the RAC) at the same time, they produced it for a couple years.
