 The Gt Fury looks like hot garbage because of the orange fork/red frame graphics.

 Give me all the downvotes, you colorblind simps.. FYI, I own many Fox Factory products

... The Orange Factory thing is just so dumb on multiple levels. First of all, Orange doesn't match with anything but dull earth tones, or black, or orange. Secondly, Orange looks like @$$ with kashima. Third- You're trying way too hard to market your product. Anyone who is into the sport knows what products the pro's are using. You don't need a visible-from-space orange lower for people to know who's riding fox.

 @Glory831Guy: The orange honestly can be a bit much, but one color you are leaving on out are most hues of blue. Done right, the fork pairs veeeerrrryy nicely. Check my buy-and-sell page if you don’t believe me. I thought it might be too crazy til I built it.

BTW, what color, in your opinion, would be a better option to pair with kashima (other than black, and don’t tell me you don’t like the kashima too)

Bring back Pistachio?

 @MrShreddypants: Kashima is dope. I call my trailbike Goldie because of the Black/Gold Factory suspension and the Gold KMC chain. Kashima looks a lot better with Nardo Grey than Orange.

 @MrShreddypants: I don't know about blue with orange. People always say that orange goes with blue because they're opposites on the color wheel. I don't really agree.

 good to see dorados here and there. Crazy to think of that fork as a vintage touch, but its so cool. 2005 me approves
  • 4 2
 I don't think it's much of a vintage touch. That's the new carbon one. I've seen more and more of them at the park this summer, after maybe seeing 2 Dorados a year for the last few years.
