    Hi I know this is a folder but I am looking for very shallow advice, I am about to pull the trigger on a Brompton and have decided on an M6L with the low gear ratio option the only question is what colour? I quite fancy grey with Lime green forks and rear triangle but other suggestions are welcome.

    Black or Racing green - anything else makes it look like a clown's bike - :hyper:


    (Well, mine is black and it still looks like a clown's bike - so maybe green :smile: )

    Ivory has an under-stated elegance.

    Contrasts well with most other colours if you want to go down that route.

    Mine is racing green as I wanted a colour I wouldn't get bored with.

    Not really. It serves a purpose.
    Every now and then I do think it's jolly good fun though.

    Red ones are fastest.

    Pink ones are most raffish.

    No I’m with you on your choice. A good place to look at a really good bike colour pallet is Surly Bikes. Aside from their black, frameset only options, they come up with some brilliant colours.

    The clear laquer looks pretty cool. My brommie is Tempest Blue.
