    ...but I'm torn. My wife and I are gonna get matching bikes. I really like one color, she really likes another, and we're both on the fence. The third color is also a consideration.

    Talkbass, we need your help, as we know you know best.

    And please tell me why. :)

    I'm just plain not a fan of olive green, unless it's flat olive drab and clearly military in nature.

    I like the sour apple a lot except for the pink cable housing. If you can get it with white cable housing, this is the winner in my eyes.

    The navy blue is not offensive at all, but wouldn't be my first choice, unless you can't get sour apple with white cable housings.

    I'd go with the (surf) green. Why, the color looks cool, and if one ever got "borrowed" it'd be easier to identify.

    What kind of bikes are those anyway?

    Citizen folding bikes. Only $200 frikken bucks. :)

    Didn't notice the pink cables. Let's say they're white. I think they could change that.

    Navy blue. Tan saddle is too cool to pass up.

    Saddle also can, and actually will be, changed for a more comfortable one they offer as an upgrade. That can any color.

    +1. That combo with the chrome kills.

    I picked olive. The other color schemes will get dirty fast and look real bad dirty. That won't be a problem with olive and black. I like that color scheme best, anyway. Or, at least, dislike it the least.

    Tan saddles are pretty darn classic, though, it must be said.

    I voted blue, simply because the olive & apple don't look good to me.

    Arrgghh!

    This isn't going to work out too well for me here. :)

    I like the sour apple. Surf green is my favorite bass color. My wife likes it, but thinks it's "girlie" looking. I didn't notice the pink cables and she might have.

    Do you guys think surf is "girlie" looking? I don't. Reminds me of this:

    If it was just me I'd go for olive but I know my wife. Her choice would be sour apple and I'd be just as happy with that - the pink cables rock IMO.

    The navy blue is too 9-5

    Surf is girlie looking but it looks phenomenal on certain guitars. I like olive. The navy speaks as an odd color to me for some reason. I also think the blue and brown is ugly on that bike. Olive is a classy, plain combination in my opinion.

    I say you both should get different colors. Not a fan of the funny green one in the middle but the other two are great.

    Joe, you were holding out. You didnt tell us they had Powder Blue:

    I don't like the grey tires on the Sour Apple. If it could be dressed out exactly the same as the Navy bike, I would run with that combo.

    For $100 more, the Gotham2 model is pretty cool:

    This would be my overall choice

    Same here.

    The apple one... nah I don't like that at all. It looks girly IMO.

    EDIT: the more I gawp at the navy blue and tan one, the more I feel like I must have it.

    I like the apple one. It reminds me of surf green. I don't think it looks girlie, but then I don't associate colours with gender... Well, at least so far as a bicycle is concerned. I think that combination reminds me of graffiti colours more than anything... I think it would look better with black tires (like the olive coloured bike), if that's even an option. The powder blue one is awesome as well... Whichever colour you choose, that seems like a hella cool bike for $200 bones. Score. :D

    1. Black is always stylish; can't go wrong with that.

    2. Has pink. But the rest looks cool.

    3. Has pink. And it looks like an Easter egg.

    I don't like colored tires. Seems like it would be expensive to replace one and you'd probably have to get it from the manufacturer or shop that sells those bikes. I voted olive.
