I have a thing for red bikes.

A very beautiful Peugeot U08 fixed gear I scored off craigslist. Did some work on it, at this point I was riding 17x51 which sounds ridiculous, but I got used to it. I got into an accident a few months later and despite being on a high-traffic road during rush hour, I wasn't injured, nor was my laptop/two cameras on my back, and the frame was still in great shape. Currently working on making it a single speed triathalon bike.

This is a Masi Speciale I got with my insurance money from the crash, it's a very beautiful bike as I bought it complete and I don't have any reason to switch out any parts (besides the tires... came with stupid Vittorias which aren't meant for rough Boston roads)

I also have a bright red Felt F90 which I've ridden thousands of miles on, but I only ride it outside the city. I somehow can't find a picture of mine but a google search would do it justice. Also a (red) Specialized mountain bike but I haven't hit trails in years. I miss it.
