Do you match your bike's colors to the colors of your team's kit or do you select whichever bike you like without regard to matching the colors?

Change your bike as soon as your team‘s kit changes! LOL

I don‘t like team‘s kit. I prefer to wear the clothes I like and the bike I like. Life is too short to be told what to you everywhere.

can't agree more !

My bike is near stealth with only the Cannondale logo in white, wearing a black short and white or neon safety jersey. But if I were in a team, I definitely still would go for my own bike style (near stealth).

And tyres should be black only :-)

You should only match your bike to your team kit if the team is paying for the bike.

Conversely... you should always pick your team based on the color of your bike.

I'll leave it up to you to figure out the other 30%. If you are in any way offended, that's on you.
