    white is easier to keep clean than black or other dark colors. the paint holds up surprisingly well, too.

    With the black lava, I initially was prepared that I would have to clean it every week but I can defend that it holds up pretty well (not as the white probably, but it does not get as dirty as I expected). The part that needs cleaning often is the inner side of the fenders, due to the wheels.

    Generally, what I really appreciate and consider as 'genius' is the Slipstream single sided forks, after 3+ months and still no hair attached to it! On my previous chair I had to clean ofter and also remove caster wheels every time, such a pain...

    Much like having a white car, the chair kinda hides the dirt. My Icon was always filthy, no matter if I wiped it very day, it's is easy to see the dust on black. Being in a shop with agricultural equipment going in and out, it's quite dusty. Other than plain Ti, white works good. I had thought about going with the titanium gray paint.

    Wait, "was?" Did you give up on your Icon?

    Agreed re: black vs. white, particularly in dusty/dirty environments.

    I have to admit that when I saw the chair I did not like it however, I just saw a picture of you in it on another post and it is *hot*!
