Do you want to spend more time cleaning it, or riding it? Dark colors hide dirt better than bright primary colors ever will. White is even worse, in that regard. Shows everything.

To each their own,

Powder coated finish should make whatever color you choose much easier to clean. I would have issue with taking my bike off the road for as long as it would take to get them prepped, treated, and everything reassembled.

woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
