    Whats the deal with white bikes lately?

    They're hard to keep clean!

    This phenomenon is not just for mass produced track bikes, mountain bikes, jump bikes, bmx bikes have also caught the virus.


    pictures to come when i figure out how to use the internet =(

    welcome to 2006... this has been going on for quite awhile.

    Because they rule! I used to really dislike white bikes, but I have changed. If given the chance my next bike would be an Alien flat white frame.

    I saw a set of Tektro road brakes in white the other day. If only Campy Skeletons came in gloss white.

    DO WANT.
    It's bad when you're 19 and people consider you an "old geezer" in the current FG community.

    My road bike is white. It looks hot when it is clean and it like it gets ridden when it is dirty.
    I see no problem.

    Now my white bar tape is much more of a hassle to keep white than my bike or saddle.

    Hmmm, if only the tires, seat, chain, pedals, etc weren't black.

    Pretty much this bike:

    I own two white bikes...

    I keep it squeaky clean.


    I keep it so dirty my mechanic constantly complains and *****es at me.

    Those white Aeroheads on the Concept aren't on there anymore BTW, replaced my Open Pro CD's.

    My flat white affinity is a B!TCH to keep clean. Since the salt is mostly gone off the road I don't have to clean it everyday. Now I'm just letting it get duuurty for awhile.

    They rule when they have a chain and you can actually ride them.
