"Eye Candy" part II....Show us your White Bikes!!

So it looks like we're going to have a "Green Christmas" this year. It's not unheard of in the Northeast, but it is a bit disappointing for many.

I thought we could post our White Bikes and make up for the lack of snow this year!!

opps, I don't own any...

My wife's would be in the red bike show and tell.

My first road bike in 25 years, my Fuji Cross Comp. This day, my first century - a very hilly 100 miles.

My first derailleur bike from 1972. Yes, it still gets ridden.

This is crossing the Blackstone River on the way to work this past summer.



This is how it looked earlier in the summer (though it now carries a Velo-Orange compact-double crank).

I didn't have a blue bike for the first thread and I don't have a white bike for this one

I buy plain bikes (black or gray) so I can wear colorful jerseys

I was kinda thining of:
* Black Bikes for January, the opposite of the white snow and skies we suffer through that time of the year.
* Red bikes for February, Valentines day and all.
* Green bikes for March and St. Patricks Day.
* Silver bikes for April showers.
* Yellow bikes for May flowers.
