General Cycling Discussion - What Colors are the Bikes you OWN?
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Another color thread, but what colors are the bikes that you own?

My one and only bike is red. I really don't care for red, but it was the only color the bike was in (or at least the only color in stock).

Theoretically, the bikes belong to my sons. But I paid for them, and still pay for the upkeep, so here goes: Unused spare MTBs - 1 black, 1 silver. MTBs they Use: 1 yellow, 1 black. Road bikes: 1 grey & black, 1 blue & silver. 1 trials bike, silver.
Past bikes: white roadie, 2 red MTBs.

older trek mountain bike - red.
newer giant road bike - red.
this is just a coincidence. when i bought the mountain bike, i was a poor grad student and i needed reliable wheels to get me from the dorm to the campus.
when i bought my road bike last year, i bought it because it was on sale.
i like red, but i'm happy with other colors too. my first good bike (a low end raleigh sport touring bike that i got in high school) was grey and blue.
From oldest to newest:

And there is a purple one that has been lying around the apartment in a partially disassembled state for over a year now and that I WILL eventually put together, I swear! As soon as I decide what I want it to be (fixie, SS, multigeared?...)
Surly Steamroller in Charcoal Pearl, with grey and pink and yellow and purple accents. My bike is known around town by its Cinelli yellow/pink/purple bar tape.
I did my boyfriend's roadie in black and blue, with all black 105 9s. It looks pretty good.
