White and yellow, kill a fellow... Quote | Reply

do you follow the old berry rule (below) or any color rule, when it comes to choosing bike, helmet, kit, or shoe color?


White and yellow, kill a fellow. Purple and blue, good for you. Red's that's fifty-fifty...could be good, could be dead.

Team kit is white, yellow and back. So no. I think you're pretty visible when you look like a bumble bee.

Heh, never heard that rule.

White and black bikes, it depends on the graphics scheme. Red I don't like, just too many red bikes out there. I really like less common colors, dark forest green, orange, etc.

I used to ride a green Tomassini road bike which I picked up for a scream. I was told I got such a deal due to the belief in Europe that green bikes were cursed and no European rider would own one.

I did pretty well on that green machine, so I guess the curse did not make it across the pond.

The curse, Guess that is why the Bianchi riders do so badly. I like the seafoam green myself.

That's not green, that's "celeste". Love that color BTW.

I think the curse only hold true for microsoft start button "green" or so I am told.

Never ride a bike that looks better than you off it than on it.

Yes. But then I also use this one:

Red on Black,
Friend of Jack.
Red on Yellow,
Watch out, Fellow.

Which is why none of my bikes have red on yellow. :)

Should ITU efforts in the U.S. be considered a success because of its winning women, or a failure because of its lack of consistent performances by its men?
