    So my '15 f8 POS Red is being warrantied for a paint issue and I need to choose a new one. I can get '15 or '16 models but selection is limited. So far I can get the '15 green/orange or wait for some 16s. My beloved red is not available.

    Can't decide if the 967 green/orange will get tired looking after a year or two.

    Agreed, although I secretly like the Green and orange.

    In ref to the dating, as much I like the scheme is this years Team Wiggo frame, it was instant when he signalled his intention to quit the roads after the Olympics.

    or Orange stripe! like the blue!

    I passed on BLK carbon/white/red and wanted the blue but missed the opportunity. The 681 is nice, and maybe white/black but don't want the extra cleaning required.

    This is what I pulled the trigger on. Didn't want to wait for 845 blue and wanted something different from what I've already owned.

    Please post a pick. I wanted this bike so bad. But talked myself out of it.

    Sneak peak of the replacement frame. The silver in the down tube is metallic as well as the F8 on seat tube; looks very good outside in the sun. Also the stripe down the seat tube shows the carbon weave....classy. Overall, the paint job is very nice. Can't wait to get this built.

    Done! Considering going black saddle and bar tape down the road and blacked out wheels. The paint job is very good and looks awesome in person.

    Those ENVEs are almost 5 years old and 35k miles so it's not likely removing them will benefit me other than replacing with black labels. When spinning the white labels look cool. That said I've got some new wheels on order so these will either get different hoops, or go on the rain bike to replaces some even older Reynolds wheels.

    The new hoops will be 50s clinchers and stealthy graphics.
