One yellow, one red.

Yellow...they match my Vittoria tires. Afterall, if you're not color coordinated, your shouldn't be out on the bike. This has got to be the most important, informative thread I have ever seen on this board. It's so good to share such critical information.

Yes, it's threads like this that cement roadbikereview's reputation as a haven for useful, thoughtful, and intelligent bike tech discussion. I'm proud to visit other forums and say, "I spend most of my time at that forum where they really care about my bike's color."

But my favorite would have to be a tie-dye cap that I bought from the back of a VW microbus at a Grateful Dead concert.
What color were they when the acid wore off?Morgan

the different colored caps weigh too much, I got seven to make me custom ti ones.

Actually it's threads like this that kinda put it back into perspective:)

I prefer to use the little coloured noise makers that go on the spokes, looks way better than any silly valve cap and annoys you're fellow racers way more. Only thing better is colour matching streamers. TTFN
