I really like colorfull bicycles as well as the other ones. There is nothing wrong with a cycle in a dozen colours. After looking on 100 cycles in decent black or racing green it is wonderfull to have a refreshing look on one of this funny cycles in sick colors. It isn't important what color(s) was used, I think, it is much more important how good the paint job was done. That some colors may seem to be ugly may be a problem with cheap and not so well done cycles often seen in these colours. Sometimes one have to look twice.
