"Sweet… Looks like a Christmas tree!! ;-)" That's exactly what i was thinking when I put it together! An Christmas early is good right?! I think John at Phantom was short on red parts when i ordered them, so green and black with the red I thought would look okay. Looks better than I thought it would. I am pretty sure that having things color coordinated is important to how it rides - at least that's my wife's theory! Ha ha!
