It's RED, It's RED!!!

Guys, guys, guys!!! Hold up...

Maybe I'm color blind, or maybe the quality of my camera phone just sucks...but the bike is RED!! Pink is a pretty color and all, but I am all about the RED.
Taken from

Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love.

Red is a very emotionally intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure. It has very high visibility, which is why stop signs, stoplights, and fire equipment are usually painted red. In heraldry, red is used to indicate courage. It is a color found in many national flags.

Red brings text and images to the foreground. Use it as an accent color to stimulate people to make quick decisions; it is a perfect color for 'Buy Now' or 'Click Here' buttons on Internet banners and websites. In advertising, red is often used to evoke erotic feelings (red lips, red nails, red-light districts, 'Lady in Red', etc). Red is widely used to indicate danger (high voltage signs, traffic lights). This color is also commonly associated with energy, so you can use it when promoting energy drinks, games, cars, items related to sports and high physical activity.

Pink signifies romance, love, and friendship. It denotes feminine qualities and passiveness.
Red is associated with vigor, willpower, rage, anger, leadership, courage, longing, malice, and wrath.

Go ahead and beat me out of the water...but you will feel my wrath on the bike. No other color will do.
