White bikes.

Are pretty awesome, I never used to like them. Something pretty badass about a complete white bike. I am looking to get an Alien frame and might go with the white, now matte or glossy is the question.

It strikes me as bad juju to ride around on a ghost bike

I also like white bikes. I have an all black road bike and was thinking of an all white SS (for some karmic balance....)

I thought about the perfoemance bike, it was only $340 last week.

I'm also thinking about this as there are some good cross tracks around here. I wish it came with removable decals though.

"Murdered Out" at UurbanDicitonary.com:

When a vehicle has black paint and black everything. If it's a car, the window tint should also be really dark and other aftermarket accessories such as black taillight covers etc. should aid in blacking out the ride.

"That Escalade is truly murdered out man."

I don't know what term is worse, "murdered out" or "fixie"

Also wear a white bedsheet with cut out eye-holes while you ride your ghost bike.
That would be awesome!

See, that's the advantage. Get a white bike, and if you get hit, it'll mean less work for your survivors to set up a ghost bike.
