thats what caught my eye... nice monochrome black inconspicuous and not flashy. yup i'll put some fenders on too. keep em black as well. its going to be a 5 mile commute for me through brooklyn. i'm lucky that 90% has a bike lane (but its right next to parked cars and traffic), but as i said before the culture is changing down here and drivers are a lot nicer to bikes in the lane.
