For 2017 Greenery is In!

After a crappy-ass color for 2016 (rose-quartz) and a terrible year, Pantone says for 2017 Greenery is in.


It’s been in Bike Hugger’s branding for like 12 years…

A life-affirming shade, Greenery is also emblematic of the pursuit of personal passions and vitality.

Right? Like riding your bike on former rail lines or completing that century. A podium in a race of leaderboard succession. But really, though, companies like the ones that make your bikes, work with Pantone to pick  proper pairings and anticipate what’s in style.

I have several green bikes and if you get a custom bike made, like this one with HUGE CLEARANCE, they’ll paint it whatever color you want.


I’ll probably refresh the gear on my brown bike next spring and choose a Forest Floor palette.
