Red. It's a non-DS pic but what the heck, Faliero's signature is on this side.


Pink? I don't know if this qualifies as pink. Sort of, almost, maybe. A little.

My wife's other pink (with turquoise panels) bike, a Chiorda mixte '80s-built as an MTB with cruiser fork, drum brakes and Stronglight 99 triple. Marinoni did the paint. We actually sold this to a friend for his then-teenage daughter but the bike came back to us last year. Kid grew up.

Went to get some pix with better color.

My Pinarello. The only red bike I ever owned. Unfortunately this was taken after I went from 25 to 0 mph hour in under one second. Bent top tube, down tube, fork, and handle bars. Also, killed the front rim. Oh, and 5 days in ICU for me. That was a little over 9 years ago and I've kept the rubber side down since.

Like everyone else, I am familiar with the established fact* that red bikes are faster. As such, I've managed to accumulate a few of them.

the Raleigh Team:




the Hetchins:




and the Olmo, because red Italian bikes are the fastest of all!
(the photo of the bike leaning against the tree didn't turn out that well)

* and by "fact", I do actually mean "myth".

Just recently completed my 1984 Centurion Turbo rebuild. Excited to get to ride this after my 1984 Centurion Comp TA kicked the bucket.

Another pic of the 770. From our ride yesterday. 55 degrees in Denver on February 2nd!

@cb400bill did such a great job building this bike back up. Love the little touches he put on it, specifically the 3ttt stem/bars, San Marco Rolls saddle, Clement Strada LGG rubber, Fizik leather bartape, NOS SR brake levers/hoods, and the Mavic MA40 clinchers. I feel incredibly fortunate every time I ride it
