Here is my pink Marin mtbike named “Paris”, her full name is “Paris and Nicole”. I have asked my biker friend’s 14 year-old son to design a pink/white bike and we brought it to Manila’s popular frame painter. Had the frame and fork painted and I absolutely love it!
Took it trail riding immediately. I was having a great time but as you can see the cow wasn’t event fazed with my bike’s color!
Happy riding everyone!
“I was looking around and found this site…and well i just built my wife a Pink bike:
My wife’s name is Jamie and she will now ride:
Orbea Aqua frame
Sram force group
pink selle marco saddle
pink Aerospoke wheels with pink stelvo tires
ritchey stem and handlebars
pink speedplay pedals
And finally a pink helmet
She is a converted mountain biker and is looking forward to the open road.”

“I stumbled across your site and thought you may be interested in my Scott Contessa CR1. It has Dura-ace gearing and wheel, stevillo pink tyres, pink speed play pedals. The tri-bars have neon pink tape where I have used white on the drops. My Fav touch are the pink name stickers!
“I use it for triathlons and riding out with my local club the medway velos.”

“My Bike is a custom painted Kuota. I use it to do Ironman Canada Race and training. I have the Michellie Jones Pink Tires on it and my nickname Buffy is in pink on the Wheels as well as painted on the bike.”
“I’m from the Philippines and I ride a pink bike!
“My bike’s name is Andie, named after the girl from Pretty in Pink. Andie is a road bike. I’ve been riding mountain bike for almost 4 years now, and road for almost 3 years. I do a lot of racing both in cycling and multisport. When I was building this bike, I wanted a very feminine, cutesy type of bike, but with deceiving looks, so it also has to be a very fast machine! Though I continuously work on the engine (that’s me), Andie does have some light, fast (and cute) components to keep her on top of her game! I got all the parts from various local bike shops here in Manila, while the rear purple skewer was given to me by a fellow cyclist I met during the Tour of EGAT in Thailand. He liked my purple tires and gave me the skewer to match! The pink Speedplay pedals were a surprise gift from my boyfriend!
“The frame is Cannondale Six13 Feminine, a women-specific frame in Pearl White. It has a sort of rockstar look to it. If you look closely, the frame has tiny white glitters and pale yellow stars painted on random parts of the frame. I used as many pink accessories as I can, as long as it looks good with the overall harmonic pinkness of the bike. Right now, I have a pink saddle (that says ‘Ride Like a Girl’), pink Speedplay pedals, Jagwire cables and bar tape. I also have purple tires and a purple rear skewer. The gold chain adds extra ‘bling-age’ to the white frame and pink components. I think it makes the bike look more outgoing and fun.
“I’m waiting for the pink Hudz for Ultegra to come out! I’d also like to get a set of pink tires, skewers, carbon spacers, seatpost clamp, bottle cages and screws, all in baby pink! I’ll have to keep looking around and find them though. I also saw some pink brake pads in a bike shop a while back, but they’re for mountain bikes. I’ll have to check if they’re available for road. Finally, I’ll have a sticker made, with ‘Andie’ written in silver letters to put on the frame.”
I call her “Tomboy”
It is a Black/PINK Orbea Diva

Denise sent in this pic of her friend’s pink Trek. Here’s the story:
I’d like to introduce you to PINKY.
She is the first road bike I rode, and belongs to a friend of mine. His cousin gave him the frame and then he did it all up in pink. I love pinky to bits, but i had to return her to her rightful owner and have since bought my own bike.. which is black..
please put her up on your site, the owner will be super chuffed. His name is Sasman Mohamed (b@ckinBl@ck is his online moniker that you see on the chainstay)

“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.”
Tally sent in a photo with her bike, Carson, named after Carson in “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy.” Carson loves to dress up in pink accessories. She and Carson live in St Kilda, a beach suburb of Melbourne, Australia and ride regularly along Beach Road. “Beach Road runs for 100k and attracts 14,000 cyclists each weekend so the vibe is wonderful,” she writes. She is currently in training for ‘Around the Bay in a Day’, a 212km ride, a record for both her and her bike.
“‘It all started with a stem cap…’ That’s what I say when addressing my affection for pink.
“This is Kate, my itty-bitty 48cm 2005 Orbea Mitis, decked out in her pink accoutrement. Full Campagnolo (as befits any steed from the Basque region) with Speedplay Light Actions and a Fizik Arione saddle. The cockpit bears the Chris King Pretty and Strong stem cap and Deda Elementi bar tape. Bontrager bottle cages. Schwalbe Stelvios over the 38mm Campy Shamals (otherwise, black Race-lites over 24mm Ventos).
“She’s zippy fast, a blast to ride, and apparently memorable in the eyes of others who’ve remembered her from rides several months previous. Most people quickly realize she’s pinked out for breast cancer awareness, which is exactly the point (although my jersey invoking breast cancer awareness may also help). Who says men don’t like pink?
“Great web site–keep up the awesome work!!”
