I am color blind, getting worse with age, and cannot see what is in the color charts. I know I do not need a new bike, but damn, I cannot see the number in that circle.

As someone that also has red-green color blindness, I recommend a black bike.

CAT7RDR , I have that covered with a black Soma Smoothie and a matte grey/black Orbea Avant. I have no red, green, or blue bikes. At least, I think I don't think I do.
