Yeah, pink. I missed out on an ebay carnation pink Calborn last fall - and while the frame got away the idea did not.

Very visible. Its a great ride so far.

That's a nice bike- color and all. The pink actually looks nice and it's tasteful enough that I would still consider it manly. Anyway, congrats and enjoy the ride.
