And I have no bikes in either of these colors. Please show yours.

If your bike has both colors, that counts, too.

I just sold this Mesa Runner, it was a very rich metallic red:


Wasn't the name of the color on these something like Dusty Rose?


I want more two-tone bikes like this Ross I fixed up for a friend

Does purple get lumped in with red and pink? Or is that for a different month? I don't currently have any bikes of these colors, just asking out of curiosity. I think we had discussed it at some point.

That Serotta is so, so pretty. Buy it some flowers.

Just before first snow this winter I added a 1cm longer stem and LL toe clips. Two rides confirmed that the fit is just about perfect now...waiting for spring!



I’m hoping to have this one ready to ride come spring as well...finally.

And more....

The De Rosa with a nice 11 speed Chorus "upgrade".



Then there's the little LeMond Tourmelet that's now running a nice mix of Dura Ace/Ultegra along with some Wickwerks chainrings.



And the Basso with it's deep rich red.

Hey, I’ve also got a birthday this month, in 19 days.
I’ll post some new pics of my red Trek660 after I get back from being out of town for work. I’m sure everyone is sick of seeing the ones I’ve posted before.
