How about a bike color poll w/ multiple choices?

Well we have seen the results of the "white bike" poll -- not very encouraging for those with "el blanco"! How about someone put up a poll with multiple choices for color so we can see what really is the most popular? I recommend basic colors into which you must find your choice -- no "celeste", you have to choose green or blue!

Anybody know how to post a poll??

So, up to nine color choices for a poll. What colors do you wish to see?

Reddish, bluish, greenish, yellowish, orangish, black/dark, off-whitish, pinkish, other non-whitish (describe)?

Red is not my favorite color but I think I like red the best for road bikes. For a mountain bike, old fashioned black and blue works for me.
