One should have enough bikes to have a rainbow of bikes, no?

Electric Pea is a good color, it was good enough for the Wagon Queen Family Truckster it is good enough for me!

My favourites would be copper, dark cherry red or dark blue. Black is alright, as is yellow.
Least favourite is blue-green/turqoise/celeste green, followed by any pastel colour.

It really depends on what I'm riding at the time.

Is there a choice for PSYCHEDELIC?

Off topic, but a marvelous example of why blaze orange is more visible in spring than green. Your bike and your helmet look like they're not even there!

I like the look of solid colours, i.e. bikes without logos, text or lines/designs, etc. Colours I like are white, black, fluoro burnt-orange, green, and pearl (which my buddy calls beige, but it's not beige).

That's the equivalent of wearing all dark clothing while riding down the side of a shaded highway....

What, no selection for silver??

Three of four of my bikes are silver or mostly silver (the Trek has some nice blue). The outlier is black - I think you can guess which one .

I prefer neutral colors so that any color jersey I wear will go with it.
