    What is your favorite color for a bike?

    Just curious.

    I've had them all. Polished Chrome, Silver, Black, Red, Green...etc.

    Currently, my mtn bike is white w/black,yellow and a tiny bit of red.

    Road bike is Yellow and Blue.

    BMX bike is Black w/Red & White.



    I think a Red bike always looks the fastest.

    A yellow bike is a beautiful thing!

    A polished (either Chrome or Ball barnished) ranks right up there!

    But, of all the colors, I always love a black bike. I don't really know why, but always have! And really, a Black w/Red bike!

    Oops, forgot to mention Natural Ti finish. I had a Ti frame that I bought, but never built up. That was a sweet looking frame!

    BTW, why would anybody paint a titanium frame? We had a Yellow Litespeed in the shop the other day. I just get stumped wondering. Why add the extra weight to a beautiful finish?

    On auto's I've always love bright red, my MR2 is very red, thus I think I would dig a red bike.

    Silver ! The stumpjumper i just bought is "dream silver". The second i walked into the showroom and saw it i knew i had to have that color. My car is silver too. I just like that color because it's not loud, not boring, and looks like quality to me. It also doesn't show dirt like most other colors. I guess you could say that when it comes to vehicles i just love silver. For some reason tho, i wouldn't want a silver motorcycle.......at least i don't think i would.

    Black. but.....It looked awesome when new, still looks great from a distance, but up close it has a zillion scratches that wouldn't show up in a different color. It gives it character though.

    That's hard to say...Mine is red and silver and looks great. Pretty much any neat paint job looks good (even if it's a Kona color). I've noticed some colors go better on different frames than others (for example, black seems like more of a FS color to me, while blue is a hardtail thing). Maybe I'm just weird like that.
    Also, the best color of all: Mud

    Black or polished. Polished is the best though because you don't have to worry about paint getting scratched off. I have both painted and polished, my polished bike I just toss into the truck, the painted one however I feel like I have to put it on a truck bed full of pillows.

    I have a custom metallic burgendy red paint job on one of my bikes. It is a traditional stove-enamel job by Bob Jackson, and turns heads wherever it goes.

    My favorite paintjob:
    - Chipped paint (color doesn't matter).
    - Splatter of blood.
    - Good dose of dirt and/or mud.

    Glowing, sparkling, blemish free paint on a MOUNTAIN bike tells me one of two things:
    - It's brand new - and this is OK.
    - It's not ridden hard enough!

    Yellow. My Gemini passed its frame recall check. If it had failed, I would have asked for the 900 yellow frame as a downgrade. The other 900 forest leaf is also very nice as well.

    But, yellow it would and should be.

    Nice bright metallic cobalt blue! That's what first caught my eye on the bike I ride now....lucky thing it was a pretty good one for the category.

    Black or any related color. Especially a dark graphite or a flat black color and maybe a little bit of silver or white trim. White bikes are pretty nice too I guess I'm not a colorful person lol.

    My old Nishiki Ariel had a deep blue with little speckles of various colours. It looked light a night sky so I just coined it "midnight blue". My current bikes are carbon fibre and I chose the CF weave finish for my road bike (didn't have a choice for my MTB) so they're carbon grey. I also like the look of brushed aluminum and titanium. Although I sometimes wear flashy jerseys I prefer muted colours for my bikes.
