First thing I thought of was that frame Rody, soooo cool.
And yeah I think even the fluoro marins were cool, better than the boring paint nowadays.

Fluo makes me think of moustaches and mullets.

Buuuuut as mentioned above Grello = cool, Rody's Grove = cool therefore fluo = cool. QED.

Anyone [UK] remember that gay [as in overly happy] advert about riding at night and painting yer bike some rotten fluo colour??

Quote:
Take some paint to your bike,
Get some stickers, if you like..
But get yerself seeeeeeeen!

Whether you're riding into work,
Or riding just for pleasure,
Let the world be aware, [?]
It's something that you treasure..


..or something like that..

That's how uncool Fluo paint was, is and forever shall be.. :wink:
