I was blissfully unaware of this fad (not a trend, I claim and hope), because I don't buy new bicycles.

This reminds me of one of my greatest regrets in the automotive world -- the loss of colored interiors. My lowly $12K 1989 Dodge Spirit (updated K-car) was white with a deep red, almost burgundy, interior that made it look like something far more expensive. Now the interior of every car is either black or some neutral color.
