So here's the 'Dale, ready to go for the Chicago C&V ride. Maybe I'm going a bit nutty, but I really like the yellow...
ETA: Excuse the B17 and the Campy pedals - the OEM pedals were rather shoddy (though MKS), and the saddle wouldn't be comfy without a chamois. Which I don't own. And I won't own...yet.

I think the black'n'yellow theme looks pretty awesome! what kind of tires are those?

700X23 Continental Ultra Sports. I had a heck of a time trying to get them on the rims with their wire bead. Broke two levers! I'll be interested to see how they dirty up - I've ridden it down the driveway once (and slowly) to check the indexing under load, but other than that, they're minty fresh. We'll see tomorrow night after a 30 mile ride what they're looking like.

Nicely done, Matt! that's a sweet flippin bike, and the yellow works.

Hmmm, it's a little to Pittsburgh Steelers to me... and unfortunately I am a Browns fan so I don't know if I can admit how great it looks (but it does)

I love the color scheme. I hope you enjoy the bike.

But don't be afraid to buy some good bike shorts.
Once I wore mine the first time I wondered what took me so long.
And the bibs help keep the gut in.
