    "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! : ) )

    .
    ^^This^^

    I'm a big fan of black everything's.
    I have a rattle can flat black Cadex SS with orange rims and orange Magura HS-33's, and a glossy black Karate Monkey with green rims, grips and some other small parts that are green.
    And my Pugsley (that is now crippled) was going to be flat black with some glossy black parts.
    I think a majority of flat black with a dash of glossy is a perfect way to create a fully murdered out bike and still atract attention to the finer details.

    I'm not a fan - it resembles what people do to crappy cars to make them look somewhat less crappy and in the end make them look like silly high-school disasters.

    To me, that is. I try not to judge though. If that's your thang, that's your thang.

    Hah but that's the point. That actually serves a purpose. In the case of the Lambo and Civic, it's just someone with questionable taste.

    Don't be angry about it. As I said, I don't judge. I just find it hilarious and tacky. My opinion only.

    By you "finding it hilarious and tacky" you are judging. Just interesting a person who finds it "hilarious and tacky" joined in on the thread where people are posting their bikes, they like.

    I thought this thread was revived from the dead at first. There is an old one with nearly an identical title. If you want an all black bike that's fine but this "murder out" term needs to die its own quick death.

    i think an all matte black bike (or car or anything else) can look really good if it's done tastefully.

    for that matter, an all olive drab MTB/flat black accents bike would be a pretty cool look as well.

    this coming from a man who rides a bright blue bike sporting neon yellow brake levers that could be spotted on a moonless night a mile and a half away...

    So, you are saying that the owner should have restored the exterior with white paint sorta thing... It is not like the car was showroom nice when they decided to go matte black with it. Most likely it looked terrible before the matte was applied.

    Personally, I would never matte black a car fwiw....but that Lambo above...yep! Love it.

    Don't get me wrong, I love all black bikes, though I would go with touch of red if I ever go this way... (I understand it wouldn't be murdered, but I love my bike alive and kicking ) but this is a silly argument. This is not a fashion statement, stealth planes are matte black with reason

    But if I only buy black bikes, my wife doesn't notice them come and go, or if I add to the stable. If I got asked "is that a new bike?" my answer was "This bike? I've had a black bike forever." It was carefully constructed to not be a lie, and not admit that it's new bike.
