“I ran across your site right after I order my new bike. Its a Pake frame with bubble gum pink Velocity rims and matching pink wrap on the handle bars.  I’ve had it for about one month and already I ride it every day to work (brooklyn to manhattan) and have road it out to montauk.  I love it, I feel like its pinkness makes it all the more fun to ride.”

“This bike started out as a 1987 Centurion Dave Scott Master Triathlon 12-speed with Tange No. 1 double-butted tubing. I wanted an all-pink single-speed, and its quality frame and Shimano 600 brakes, crank, and headset made this a good candidate for renovation and conversion. After dismantling the bike and sawing/filing off the shift lever mounting lugs on the downtube, the frame and fork were powder coated pink. I left the rear derailleur hanger on in case I ever want to convert it back to a multi-speed. My husband reassembled the bike with wheels he built from Mavic Open Pro rims, pink Milwaukee high-flange hubs, and DT Swiss double-butted spokes. The 42-tooth chainring is Salsa, and the 17-tooth freewheel is Shimano. The Noah’s Ark handlebars from Soma are wrapped with pink tape and equipped with new Shimano brake levers. A pink seat and pink toe straps complete the theme. Its light weight and tight geometry make the bike a quick handler for my daily commutes to the office.”

“Hi there!

“I saw this link on Road Bike Rider and just HAD to share my pride and joy! My pink bike has purple flames and white flametips. Its a Trek 5.2 s.p.a. During riding season I ride about 100 miles/week, commuting to work and club rides. Off-season, I’m on the rollers 3-4 days/week. Everyone I ride with knows that pink is my favorite color!”

Matt Briskie pink bike

Matt Briskie, service manager at the Trek Bicycle Store of Raleigh, NC, sent in this photo of his Gary Fisher. He writes: “My name is Matt and here is my bike’s story: It is a Gary Fisher Triton set up as a fixie with a PINK Chris King NoThreadSet, PINK Bontrager waterbottle cage, PINK and black Bontrager Gel Tape. It has a Bontrager Race track crankset with 44 teeth and a 16 tooth cog on the rear. It also has a very commuter friendly bullhorn with a convenient spot to hold or put lights on like I have done. I ride it as much as I can from commuting to work, church and walking the dog.”

Jody Kirincich Trek pink bicycle

Jody writes: “It’s not fast, but it’s FUN! I won this bike (Trek: Bonnie) a couple of years ago at the April Fools Pentathalon (bike, kayak, fly a kite, build a sand castle, run up and down a dune) in Pacific City, Oregon. I used it for errands and cruisin’ all around town in Corvallis, OR, where we lived at the time. This summer we moved to Cape Cod. Now I use it everyday to commute to and from work. The best part about it is that people smile when I ride by on this bike!”

“Crystal:

“I love your pink bikes page! If you want another photo of a pink bike, here is one of my flamingo pink Brompton P6R-X folder, fully loaded as I had just ridden home from the Los Angeles International Airport with all my luggage on board. I often commute to work as well with the Brompton, about 20 miles a day on the bike (and then lots more miles with the bike folded on the train). Other days I commute on my motorcycle, a BMW R1200RT, but sadly they don’t make those in pink.
