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).

My '81 Cilo is red. My homebuilt recumbent is an interesting combination of polished aluminum and black. (goes nicely with the white "Toro" label on the mesh seat-back, which I made from a lawnmower bag.)

"Think of bicycles as rideable art that can just about save the world". ~Grant Petersen

Cyclists fare best when they recognize that there are times when acting vehicularly is not the best practice, and are flexible enough to do what is necessary as the situation warrants.--Me

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.
As with mud, life, too, slides by.

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.

Black and black. I also used to own a silver one (gave it to my mother). 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?...)
