Just wondering if anyone has seen or has pictures of a Gunnar in the Orange Glow over Sterling Silver color of the month. I think it would look grea but would like to see it on a completed bike.

Just sent you a photo of an Orange Glow / Sterling Waterford. The file is too big to post here.

Dave,

I am very interested in the Orange Glow color of the month too. Plus, I am running out of time to order it, so could you please forward the Waterford pic to me as well. I have got to get off the dime.

Thank you.

Jim

I'm very interested in the orange color. Could you also send me a picture. Is the deadline to order 9/30 or sometime before that day? My local bike dealer is on his honeymoon riding in France, but will be back next week.

Thanks.

Here is an updated Crosshairs in Orange Glow. The decal for the color of the month is Silver w/ Red trim.

I like the color also because the bike looks unique in the great mass of Treks and Cannondales, etc.

Can custom color decales be ordered with an upcharge? If so, how much? Nothing exotic, probably white with black outline.

Hi,

At this point the only two decals are Black w/ Silver and Silver w/ Red. We have some thoughts on one or two more options at some point.

I'm confused. First, the photo on the site was a very metallic orange, I liked it.
I posted and asked for a photo and recieved a picture of a waterford mountain bike that was supposed to be the orange color but it looked more like a burnt orange, still liked it.
Now the new photo, that has been posted on the site, looks like the 2006 models being sold at my local bike store, kind of a flat orange, that I'm not so thrilled about.

Which orange is it?

Thanks.

Sorry for the confusion. It is all of them. Those are all shots of Orange Glow over Sterling Silver. What we cannot control is light and what it does to the reflective properties of the paint. Also, the details and depth for the paint get lost on the web.

Orange Glow is an orange tinted clear and is applied over a metallic sterling silver. It is not a flat color.

Your next step may be to stop in at a dealer and take a look at the actual paint chip.

Best,

Just got my Gunnar Sport together, and thought I'd submit another example of Orange Glow over Sterling Silver. Photos just don't do it justice. Gunnar makes a great bike!
