    I have a 2015 matte black. I love it. I like the black/red over the white.

    Both look good, but Specialized does some of the best "White" paint schemes out there and it would be my choice.
    You can have my Disc Brakes, when you pry them from my cold, dead hands.

    Learn to love ugly colors/finishes.

    The less popular colors give you more bike for less money.

    I expected to see more complaining about how boring black and white bikes are.

    White for me - as I am not a fan of matte colors. Colors should be shiny.

    Specialized Crosstrail Sport - '08
    Nishiki Sport - misappropriated from my youngest son (circa 1984)
    Marin Stinson - misappropriated by my youngest grandson - '01

    I hate the scratches that seem to show up overnight on matte finishes. Plus, the white bike reminds me of the cherry and white colors of my beloved Temple University, so I may be biased there...Go Owls!!
