    "Murdering out" your bike Passion

    What does the phrase "murder out" mean to you? I have some friends who use that term a lot when discussing mtn-bike parts. I just got some Stans ZTR Flow rims and my buddy said I should take all the stickers off to "murder it out".

    What part of your bike have YOU murdered?

    I murder spokes on my bikes all the time.

    Also use to commit genocide on inner tubes before switching to tubeless.

    I haven't murdered a thing on my bike except for some tubes and a crank. I have heard that removing stickers helps with the aerodynamics though!

    My 2013 Specialized Stumpjumper EVO 29 came all black except the rotors, chain, and cassette.

    I do like the "murdered out" look but I've got to have some color.
    I removed the stickers on last set of Stan's rims on this bike.
    Built these up last year and just couldn't do it.
    I dig black rims and frame with white fork.

    Yay...

    All black, so you can be just like everybody else. How original

    I prefer to bring things back from the dead.



    Behold... one of only three sets of silver Titec H-Bars on the planet (as far as I know). Oh, the other two are on my other bikes.

    Gotta love the EZ-Off.

    Both murdered out S-Works. Tarmac SL4 LTD on the top. Epic SW on the bottom. My Stumpjumper EVO 29 frame comes this week too. Murdered of course.

    Possibly the only way you'd catch me on a road bike is if I can find/build one that looks as sick as that one...

    Second on the Stumpy Evo HT...it came fully murdered. I have added some white accents as to reduce the morbid nature of the bike.

    Is it just me, or

    doesn't it kill the murder-effect when you have shiny silver discs, tan/gold stanchions, silver bolts throughout build, silver chain, cassette, etc etc..

    I wish there were more options to eliminate this and make the bike 100% black. Trust me, that would look REALLY nice

    Nice bikes anyhow!

    Takes no creativity to have a fully murdered out all black bike. Pretty much the same with folks making all white bikes as well.

    A few colored bits makes the bike look unique, too many colored bits makes it look like you need to ride more and focus less on appearances.

    False.

    Creativity is individual to every person. Murdering out a bike can have subjective gloss and matte parts to create uniqueness and creativity. It is not just as simple as spraying the entire bike with a black rattle can.

    Not to mention, that is just what some people like. Not every one wants purple caliper bolts.

    I love all black bikes but to me they're just 'metal'.. ie What would Lemmy ride? Hell's Angels got it right decades ago.



    A bit of silver for the biker look?

    (murdered-out, 'pulling the trigger'... there's some choice phrases over that side of the pond! : ) )
