Trivial question, but critical nonetheless

Well, maybe not critical, but I'm hoping the forum can get me off the fence. I'm riding Levi's on Saturday and trying to decide between white kit and blue kit. Please share your opinion.

And please, nothing like 'decide for yourself' or 'red' or 'you suck'. Just tell me white or blue.

Thx.

You know, if it was in SF I might be able to get away with it (Bay to Breakers anyone?) I'll probably spare the good people of Santa Rosa the horror of seeing me naked. Plus I'd have to take off my white saddle and replace it with something.....darker.

Blue. Preferably something close to a Gios Torino cobalt blue.

Blue. White is just wrong.

something you will be able to spot yourself easily in pictures.. I"m gonna wear my bright coral Rapha climbers jersey. My wife was trying to talk me into the Oscar the grouch jersey (maybe next year) Between blue and white.. since it's not going to be a scorcher like last year.. go for blue.

This is the same kind of stupid argument I get in with myself all the time. I'm pleased I'm not alone.

If the day is really hot, white. If not, or if there is a slight chance of even slightly wet roads, blue.

Now, what socks should I commute in Friday?

Closing the loop on this. Took the advice of the forum and went with blue; good times were had by all. Thanks for the advice!

Eek, that sucks.

Let me rephrase: good times were had by me.
