Pink...

I've always been of the assumption that pink is for baby-girl nurserys and little stuffed fuzzy bunnies.












I believe the first 7 pic's show alot of diversity, but I think the last 3 show the true side of pink.

Yah...I'm always teetering on the edge of what's socially acceptable.

Mind you...I'm not here to bash pink, I just never saw so many "men in pink" until I started riding MTB's. What's that saying? (I truly don't know)

Pink is just another color in my box of crayons.

Some people have a thing for blue, some people have a thing for green and some people have a thing for pink.


I don't think it implies anything.

Unless you are a roadie. Then it implies that you are extra 'effete'

There are two sides to this I think: 1) You have to have a thick hide and cajones of stainless steel to rock a pink bike (especially a gravity sled); or 2) You are a foo-foo roadie boy.

I don't think it does either...it just sorta clashes with what I thought was somewhat of a typical idea.

You can wear pink if you're dropping the GLC in XC gear.

Men who are secure enough with their male side are secure enough to wear pink.
