Are you freaking KIDDING me, Haro?

Well, I just picked up my bike from the shop today:



White? White? Wow, that's ugly. Well, the only consolation is that given this frame style's track record, I'll only have to put up with it for another 3-4 months before it gets replaced again, although what'll the next color be? Purple? Pink?


I accepted the bike because functionally it's no different obviously, and I didn't want to wait another 3 weeks for them to switch out the part. Doesn't mean I like what they did, and I'm not too happy that the bike shop didn't give me a heads-up when they received the part. Well, it rides just fine (I took it out this evening) and I sure am glad to have that rear suspension again. But, seriously?


Hmpf.

Picky, picky! ;)

Function over form, I say. Most of the time...

You're right, of course, Christina... But it did look so much prettier when the colors matched:)

White is a great a color but the dust, stains, mud and everything are very visible for that matter.
