Wow. It hasn't even been January for a full day here in the EST time zone and we are up to five pages already. I thought about posting my white UO-8, but why go through the trouble?

Picked up this near mint Univega Nuovotech 450 this past year. Pretty much a survivor. Less than 30 miles on it. Love the pearl white paint. It comes alive in the sun. Still not sure why they put a black stem on this originally.

It's last year's thread, brought back for the new. Same was done for December and seems a good enough idea.
Five pages of white bikes in a day would be impressive though.

Here's two that are both about half white, need to get more pics of the 3r and the Merckx is way too small, would like to trade the frame for a comparable one in at least 60-62cm. Anyone?

Oh, did we have a January last year? I can't remember back that far. So much has happened since then (and some I'd like to forget but dare not).

Here's a pic of my white bike in a snow storm.

My latest acquisition

Is this a white bike?
1984 Pinarello Montello, with tribute paint scheme for Alexi Grewal's Olympic Gold.

edit: pictured as received. The tires are now black, changes will progress over time.

My 1991 everyday commuter with 6603 10 speed Ultegra drivetrain. It has a Brooks on it now, not the duct taped saddle in the picture

I found this picture on a blog. It's the same model and color as my first ten speed which I got in 1975. My Atala Giro D'Italia had Weinmann brakes, and this one pictured has Universal brakes. Mine had Simplex Prestige derailleurs and shifters.

Probably, technically no. But it is nevertheless a great looking bike. Thanks for posting.

Been awhile since it's made an appearance - the Grand Sports and me at a midnight cycling event awhile back. Next to us is a Nishiki Prestige I built for my sister who rode with me - hey, there's *some* white on that one...
