I'm within five days of ordering a Mini. I thought for sure I wanted black, but now wondering if I should get white? Please help!!

I find dark colors on a bicycle tend to show far less dirt and grime from the road, drive line, and brakes. Light colors may be better in a dry, dusty environment. Black is especially nice as chips and scratches are super easy to touch up with paint or a marker.

I bought a white radrover. Liked it. But ended up exchanging the white for a black one instead after a few months of trying out the white.

White is nice. But black is also good. More bike like and less noticeable.

I have a black and white Radrover. Both look equally good in person. I ride and switch off both for weekday work commuting and trail riding. The only thing that really gets dirty are the tires, rims, and chain/derailleur compared to the rest of the bike. The only issue I have with the white RR is the tan hand grips are starting to get discolored from normal oils/sweat from my hands.

I like the higher visibility, so white.
I get a lot of comments on my rad rover. Mind you Im riding it around Bismarck ND in the winter.

I put the tan grips/seat on the black rover and the black grips/seat on the white rover - LOOKS WAY BETTER having a white rover with black grips/seats - I think
