    DG - Meet Black Sheep

    DG,

    This is Black Sheep - and he's upset about your white bike is better rantings. It reminds him of his wimpy white Paramount Sibling. Black sheep is different, vintage 1990 CF wrapped lugged aluminum frame with a new all carbon fork and Profile Design integrated CF TT bar/stem/aerobars. He's a bit irate that I put a mirror, bell, GPS mount, and dionette tail light on him (for commuting) because he likes to go naked and light.
    Just a fair warning, should you encounter him one day... just sayin.

    Black bikes are hotter than white bike, especially in the sun! Perhaps that's why Black Sheep wants to be naked.

    Yeah but white bikes can hide against a white garage door, black bikes can't.



    I have no idea why that's of any value, but as an owner of a white bike it sounded good when I typed it.
    BTW, really nice classic carbon bike!

    Not to mention white bikes can go stealth in snow.

    Speaking from personal experience, my black bike gets many more compliments than my white bike ever did.



    But then again, my white bike got the ultimate compliment, someone stole it.

    I just realized something. I have two bikes, (I knew that!) and one is white and one is black. And I like 'em both!

    DG keeps forgetting that he owns a black Giant Cypress SX. I feel sorry for that poor bike.
