In need of a white garage door.

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

In need of a white garage door.

In need of a white garage door.

I am having some upgrades done on my bike and want to display it in the most proper fashion when it's done. There are no garage doors around here in white. What do I do?

Photoshop and one of these should take care of the problem





in case you have several bikes



In case your bike is a Bianchi



In case you ride for team LiquiGas



In case you have an Orbea or Merlin



In case you are single



In case your bike was built in the...umm... nevermind



in case your bike is a POS



In cas you bought your bike from BikesDirect

I think you have it all wrong. The Bikes Direct Bikes are always in front of nice garage doors. That is because we can afford a house with a garage and a nice garage door! Fiscally Smart!!!

Looks like one of those hinges is Ultegra (but the rest are 105).
