    Mud season - show us your tan and brown color bikes

    The snow is starting to melt here and exposing some browns in farm fields and gravel roads so how about sharing a photo of your tan or brown bike. (Ulterior motive - I'm looking for a good shade somewhere between off white or light brown for my drop bar mountain bike build) :-)

    Having a flat tire as part of the total cycling experience is highly overrated. Knowing how to fix one quickly is not.

    Someday, I'll take a better picture. I almost feel guilty showing the same one over and over. Almost.

    Peugeot called this 1985 frame color "champagne". This a popular automobile color in these parts as it supposedly don't show the dirt as much as a dark color. My daughter drove a '98 Mazda 626 with a very similar color.

    Current:
    - 1973 Peugeot PX-10
    - 1985 Peugeot PSN-10 x 2 (original and gravel racer/ascender/club ride)
    - 1988 Schwinn Prologue TT
    - 1990 Hakima (Sirocco) Dutch framed Belgian with Super Record
    - 2012 Kestrel 4000 SL Ultegra (my modern TT ride)
    - 2013 Ridley X-Fire

    I thought this was going to be a thread with mud covered "brown" bikes.

    Now there's a man who knows how to have fun!

    Any bike can be brown if you work at it hard enough. This is after our Groundhog Day ride. It was much worse after this Saturday's ride.

    Real cyclists use toe clips.
