    Old neon bike photos please..........

    1990s Neon colors & Bar Ends for bikes:
    The dominant youth clothing fad at the beginning of the 1990s was fluorescent or dark colors[citation needed]. Fluorescent clothing was associated with cool, summer themes like surfing and the beach. The five fluorescent colors were blue, green, orange, pink, and yellow.
    Fluorescent clothing was especially popular with teenage and pre-teen girls, but fluorescent t-shirts and shorts were also popular with boys. Fluorescent clothing included t-shirts, sweatshirts, socks, shoelaces, hair scrunchies, and fanny packs. Hypercolor clothing, made of material which changes colors according to temperature, also came into fashion during the early 1990s. In 1991
    fluorescent colors were replaced by colors such as coral, hot pink, and turquoise. The popularity of bright colors declined through 1995. Hoop earrings were also a popular accessory for teenaged girls and women in the first years of the 1990s. Bar Ends for bikes also was all the rage. They were a fad that left the scene in the late 1990s. Which to some was not soon enough.

    How about posting up some old photos of these beloved rigs.

    Check the guy and his equipment all in the back. It's Roger Honegger competing for the Cilo Team back then.
    The rider up front some of you might know?

    Does Day Glo Yellow count? Note the painted to match thumb shifter pods and water bottle cage.

    Now that I have this one to ride, I need to dig out my old neon socks (had two sets; one yellow and one pink, and would wear one of each as a pair just because I thought it was cool).







    Anybody seen my Oakley's?

    The skinny tired bike is long gone, it was just a money maker not a rider. I have nothing against road bikes, I just don't enjoy them.

    The bikes in the background are long gone as are the pictured bikes, these are old pics of bikes I've sold.

    cool shot of Frischi. That must have been the year before he signed with Ritchey; still a junior probably. What is Mondia? I remember he had that and "Kuwahara" I think on his Ritchey jerseys for a year or so...

    This one is pretty bright. It's somewhat blinding in the sun light.

    You guys are going to think I'm nuts, but after reading this thread I just had to find these.....








    Had to go through about a hundred boxes of old junk, but I knew they had to be somewhere. No way I would have thrown them out as they were with me on so many great rides bitd. I'm suprised they're still in such good condition after all they went through.

    I might just have to wear them on today's ride for old times sake, (not sure if I'm still man enough to rock 'em mis-matched though.lol)

    This was brighter before the sun faded it. All the white was originally yellow. And no, I am NOT the person that left it out in the sun- bought it like this.
