Should I change the color of my Frame?

I had it painted Red two years ago. I am thinking about pulling her apart this year and going with a Titanium color. Would have it stripped down and not sure if I would just go with paint, powder coating, or anodized. What are your thoughts? I could just leave well enough alone and leave it red.

I have always liked the frame on these bikes to stand out. The black bikes with a red frame just pop. I would like to see if someone could Photoshop the pic. Dave you do have me thinking about the subframe. Not going in red but may do it in Ti or black?

Personally, if you like the frame to stand out, I think you have chosen the best color already. Maybe anodize the subframe black? That's something I've been considering during our southern hemisphere winter.

It ain't what you ride, it's the way you ride it.

The old saying goes "If ain't broke, don't fix it" having seen that bike in the flesh - it DEFINITELY ain't broke!
