Actually, I've got scientific proof that red is the fastest color. It has the longest wavelength and the lowest frequency, so it gets there quicker than all the other colors. But since I'm too old to give a crap any more, I just go with the color I like best.

Since my wife has a CTX700 red, I would have to get the grea/blue or black. I'm thinking grey/blue right now.

Yes, you absolutely cannot get the same color bike as your wife's. That would be .... well, almost as bad as Stupid and I'm With Stupid t-shirts. You just can't do it.

me too, really.

But since gray/blue has a shorter wavelength and faster frequency and light travels at the same speed, the red one will still be waiting for it's tail to show up long after the gray/blue one has pasted by!

then again, I currently have a black bike and no one can see when they go past since they are stealth and invisible.
