Dropout Prototypes

I just received these photos of the first round of Dropouts just back from the powdercoaters. 

We will be picking the best of these color schemes for our production frameset.  Since this bike is going to get beatup, it was a no brainer to use powdercoat instead of paint (more durable). 
Since a mulitple color powdercoat is prohibitively expensive (for a frame you're going to beat the crap out of), the best way to make it interesting is to use a separate color on the frame and fork. We decided to keep it classy and roll with a low contrast color scheme. 

Blue on Blue

Grey on Grey

Green on Green

Cream on Brown

And yes I know that the decal should match the fork color.  We're working on it.
