    Catalyst Orange?

    Does anyone have any live pictures of a Madone in Catalyst Orange? This looks like a very interesting color on the P1 site, but I would like to see it in a real-world picture.

    Thanks!

    I came withing seconds of ordering it. My LBS called TREK and the rep said it was an "interesting" color - not Construction/safety orange, but not the "burnt orange" of Univ. of Texas either. He described it like the orange for the Denver Broncos - bright, but not florescent/neon. I ended up ordering Purple instead and second guessed for a couple weeks. Now I can't wait for my "Purple Mountain Eater" to arrive. YMMV.

    If you're OK with bright colors in a bike, go for it. Catalyst Orange is best used as a complimentary color. With the right scheme, it looks pretty awesome.

    For something DIFFERENT, I was looking at using it as a solid color on one of the solid/outline logo paint schemes - using either white or green for the logo.

    Remember - the only person that has to like the way it looks is YOU

    Everyone I've told about my purple/white bike says, "Yuk!" - but I don't really care. I can't wait to get it and just RIDE.....
