OK guys - I'll come clean. I'm really desperate to get another 4-post so I'm posting this tripe.

I'm having a bike built but cant decide on frame colour. The choice is black, red, blue, white or yellow.

Suggestions?

Cos youll be too embarrassed if any one sees you on it otherwise Wink

Depends if you want to stand out and have a bike easy to spot in transition , or to colour coordinate or stand in or out of the crowd

Anyone who posts anything other than Red (unless it is Red & White) is a dirty rotten liar that is just totally and utterly wrong.

I haven't tried a Red bike, but I've got a Green one and a Blue one, they're both slow. I thought it was just because I'm rubbish. Didn't realise it was all in the colour Very Happy Twisted Evil
