Re: How many of you "dudes" rode pink bikes?

I am not 40-46, so I don't know if I am allowed to answer or not but...

I never did, but my buddy had a pink DB Hotstreak in 87 or 88 and I loved it. I wanted one so bad. Pretty sure my dad wouldn't have let that happen lol

I didn't have it then, but I wanted one.  Does that count?

Re: How many of you "dudes" rode pink bikes?

Xmas 1987 I asked my dad for a day-glow (any DG color) Pro Performer and ended up with a Chrome one instead.

My dad most likely didn't want to see his oldest son riding around a neon pink around our neighborhood lol actually, i know he did because he recently told me he had to special order and pay extra for the chrome one.

Re: How many of you "dudes" rode pink bikes?

I grew up in an extremely macho area in south Brooklyn, NY in the 70's-80's. That color would not fly for a minute in my hood.

The only pink bikes were in the hands of lil girls, the Powderpuff. The answer is definitely a big no.

I woudn't expect that anyone with a King Diamond avatar would have ever had anything to do with a pink bike lol

Re: How many of you "dudes" rode pink bikes?

I had a Pink GT in the late 80's and in the early 90's when pastels and neon colors were big, I had a couple of pink cars.  I got mocked a little bit but, nothing that would scar me for life.  A little talk back to them and they would usually shut up.

Re: How many of you "dudes" rode pink bikes?

I never had a pink bike, but I did have a white bike with pink Tuff IIs. I saved up the cash for some Tuff Wheels and the next time I was in the nearest town with a bike shop (60 miles away), I went in to get some new wheels. All they had were pink....and I was impatient, so I bought pink Tuff IIs.

Re: How many of you "dudes" rode pink bikes?

My rider bitd was a chrome GT PFTT, it was all chrome and black, i did have pink comps on it once...it was the 80's , it was the norm. All i need to say is Miami vice....

We really only cared about how you ride, not what or what color.
