    My opinion, I don't like either "A" or "B". They remind me a larger scale version of a circus clown bike, but hey... kudos to those that ride'em!

    Black tires version for the win.
    More Americans wanted Hillary Clinton to be President than wanted Donald Trump.

    Donald Trump has never had a wife he didn't cheat on.

    There are 2.6 million covid cases in the United States (as of June 30), five months after Donald Trump said it was "totally under control," and that "it's gonna be just fine."

    Hope you didn't use a sharpie to do that. You may want to reconsider your engineering analysis of traction of rubber with paint on it. Don't ask why I brought this up!

    Yeah, I like the simplicity and monochromatic look of A. If you decide to mess with that, don't do it piecemeal. Choose an accent color and look for other subtle places to incorporate it. Anodized bolts, cable housing, grips, saddle, etc. You can even use electrical tape to do a little ersatz pin striping if you want. Less is more, but a good accent color can set things off.
    Given his penchant for nicknames, and his aversion to reading, I've decided to shorten Donald J. Trump to it's essence: Dump*

    I was "social distancing" before it was cool.

    While I'm a fan of tan wall tires, I prefer the black walls on this bike.
    Too old to ride plastic
