    Red. Clearly red. Even though I have a black bike, I know red is fastest.
    I can close the case in two words: Ferrari Red.

    Think about it folks, do you GO or STOP at a red light? Answer STOP, meaning it's slow.
    Do you GO or STOP at a GREEN light? Answer GO, so green is fast.
    Do you GO, GO like He!! or STOP at a yellow light? Answer, pedal to the metal, go like crazy, so YELLOW is the fastest color.



    Especially when there's mud on the bike.

    Rust because it doesn't have all the weight from that heavy paint and rust is lighter than the original steel. A bike that is all rust is very light.

    With regards to how "Fast" a bike is, color really doesn't matter at all.

    This subject has been done to death- and we all know that tyres are the thing that makes a bike faster. You can admittedly get tyres in different colours- but I have yet to see white tyres at the front of the pelaton.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    Google "fastest color" and you will see that the answer is orange.

    When I google "Sage Green and Cream" I get a rug, a christmas tree and some hand cream. I guess that puts me out of the running for fastest color scheme on a bike huh.
    It's all downhill from here. Except the parts that are uphill.

    Rick, if you're going to be a blues fan, a sense of humor is absolutely essential.

    BTW. I actually saw Furry Lewis onstage just a few months before he passed away. There was a traveling show featuring him, Piano Red and a couple of other very old blues musicians to get them some exposure before they were gone. They played at the college in my town. Very cool stuff.

    Hmmm...

    Last time I checked we were playing the nation's only undefeated team in New Orleans for a Sugar Bowl Trophy, a big BCS pay check and a top 5 finish. Not too bad for a rebuilding year.

    Sure. Go ahead. Try and convince the world that playing a bunch of surfer dudes that were lucky enough to beat a bunch of schools where the real sport is cow tipping is not too bad for a rebuilding year.

    We can't help who they put up against us. Sure, I'd rather play USC (also surfer dudes) and have a good chance that the AP would declare the winner national champs, but that's not the deal we got. Considering we lost a game we should have won to the lamecocks and we let the viles wipe the floor with us, I think we have to smile and take what we can get. And if we finish in the top 5 in the final poll, I won't have any problem smiling.

    I am going to regret this but the bike rider is something special. Won the TT at the Tour of Britain but he did have a handicap. The bike has some white on it

    When I think about it, I'd rather have our home state U. play a bunch of surfer dudes instead of a bunch of cousins. So you win this one.

    Well then, since black absorbs all the light and white reflects it, then wouldn't white be faster due to less radiation pressure on the bike? Unless, of course the sun's behind you. A shiny chrome bike would be even faster. We need translucent bikes.
