This is my bike (with me on it) last August in the Pyrinees. Still totally stock then.

The orange bike wins the visibility contest hands down, particularly against a green background. It has great road presence, as shown in yr. photo.

I'm going into month 10 on my orange '15 and seem to have a very high rate of being "seen" compared to my other bikes... then number of drivers who make moves that would indicate they don't see me is very low. Not that it makes me complacent, but the bright orange on the tall bike is a safety plus...

I take offense at such statement! (Everyone is offended by everything now days, right?) I think my Green Goblin has supernatural speed...

It's difficult to measure the top speed of the green ones. They sort of mush up into relativistic speeds, bending space and time and making any measurement a matter of guesswork. Or so I hear from people who ride the green ones.

Of course I have also heard that if you run a green one at max speed for more than a few seconds, the friction heat of the air turns the paint orange and you have an orange bike after that. I don't know. My bike was orange when I got it.  :027:   :008:

I wont bore you with science but if you want to be seen you want a bright pink bike, it shows out against all backgrounds and the human eye is particulaly good at seeing pink (insert smut if you wish) but Id go for orange too.
If it aint broke make it faster
