I have a 2015 matte black. I love it. I like the black/red over the white.
White over the black hands down.......... but I hate black bikes.......... so a brick of salt with that.
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.
"Retirement is the best job I ever had!" Me, 2009
Specialized Crosstrail Sport - '08
Nishiki Sport - misappropriated from my youngest son (circa 1984)
Marin Stinson - misappropriated by my youngest grandson - '01
"The Beast" - 1990 Schwinn Airdyne (in the basement for winter torture)
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!!
