Women's Cycling Colours

Postby mitchn1 » Mon Jan 23, 2017 07:00 am

For a cycling accessory - what sort of colours would people buy?
Most accessories are plain black, but would people prefer:
a) keep everything black
b) dark with a brighter colour trim (like a lot of bikes)
c) bright and 'out there' colours?

If you have any colour suggestions - eg. matching bike brands or teams please comment!

For a women's version, would people prefer a traditional pink or would this be insulting? What colours would people like to see in a women's range?

if Black get ones with plenty of high reflective panels on them. Some may say get hi-vis yellow or orange but it’s ugly and doesn’t really help except in poor daylight. Hi vis yellow in the dark is as black as well black unless light is shone on it in which case the high reflective panels show up like beacons more.

Generally most my stuff is light blue or bright red. I own no hi-vis whatsoever
