Which is the fastest colour?

I get really tired of this silly debate that comes up every day!
BUT IT'S FUN! :lol:

So let we decide it in a poll.
Isn't it fair? :lol:

Please note: nobody can poll without a comment of why she/he thinks the preferred colour is the fastest!

I think the fastest colour is the matt black.
Why? It's very simple and the scientific answer is as follows:
It absorbs the sunlight and make the bike warmer than the air around her. That reduces her drag coefficient which makes possible to achieve higher speed.

Red is the sexiest color, not the fastest.

Silver because it is a precious metal! Plus the blue metal flake in the silver paint is awsome and sparkles like fine jewels.

Hey everybody!

I didn't find all the proper name of colors.
So

Dark red = Candy Sonoma Red
(matt) black = matt black AND gloss black (all type of black)
etc.

Also the forum did not allow more poll options.

Cornbread, your red may be like that of Superman, but the yellow is like the lightening on Flash's chest and he is after all faster than Superman.
