I am trying to figure out if these are both the same bikes. Below is a stock image from Planet-X.com, where the frame is for sale. Anyone know if this is what it really looks like? Or is it a matte color?


What is the deal with the color of this bike?

That bike looks BRIGHT yellow and red. I found a picture of this one on Flickr from a couple years ago:





Anyone know if the one currently for sale is the same color as the one listed below it, the more retroish, matte yellow colored one?

WTF?

I like the yellow & red. I think it might be a little better with yellow & blue. What's wrong with it? IMO the other frame pictured is all right but a little boring.

The Flickr photos are the colours from a few (2 or 3) years ago. The yellow is this years colours.

These are quite popular over here - as it says on the page they're hard as anything. I know people who commute on them during the week and use them for 'cross at the weekend. I've been toying with getting one for a while, but really can't justify it until my current winter bike dies.

I should have said that it's not yellow - the old colour is light brown with dark brown panels. Nothing to do with white balance!
