Least favorite is white. 2nd least favorite is black. Most any color is better than those two.

A nice medium blue goes about as well with our tan-grey trail dust as any color.

I only look at a bike's color when I'm not riding it. The bike I like the most is the one I'm riding. So, invisible?

Might as well expand it to components also. Chrome/polished/shiny beats black every day of the week. There, I said it. Rims can be a combo of both. I'm on the fence about gummies vs black tires. I really like the dark Conti gummies. Limit those logos as well, particularly on the rims.

I would have voted clear coat / bare / no paint for aluminum or titanium or even steel if the choice was available.

Out of the available choices I picked white (glossy). I'd like to be subtle!

NOT black!

Even though I've been painted into a corner and my new bike is black.
(Pun intended)

blue-green. The poll needed 'other' as a choice.

An individually chosen custom paint job. It's the most satisfying.
