Lol, great question. Seems to depend on where they are. Legs are fairly instant but get darker and noticable in 2 days but my arms if they bruise do it almost instantly. My shoulder's dont seem to bruise but that maybe cause when i nail them it looks like i took a cheese grator to them.
Yeah, I find it depends on location and type of hit too...
Light / superficial stuff, I usually get color fairly soon. Bigger / deeper stuff takes a couple of days to make it to the surface.
I'm just lucky I heal fairly quickly and don't show for long...my co-workers would freak out if they saw my arms and/or legs after some of my rides where I've been really pushing myself in terms of speed or technical ability.
