    I want to know which half is black - right or left?

    Not yet, but I'm thinking I'd like that.

    1. Faster rider on a faster bike means you'll be ahead of me.
    2. The change will probably fall out of your pockets too.

    This is my urban assault bicycle which I use for my raids into NYC and posing my way around the more local cafes and bars.

    It started life as a rusty Koga Miyata which I converted to a fixie using bits I found/scrounged/stole.

    Now it's like George Washington's axe; two new heads and three new handles, but otherwise totally original. I even built the wheels myself.

    I've got a couple that qualify.
    An old Sakai that I reconstructed with a Sturmey Archer 8 speed. This is the bike I carry on the road with me.



    And my 3 speed fixie. I'm going to spend my Christmas money on a gold headset and seatpost collar to balance out the look a bit.

    Most track bikes are flat black. Here's my 2004 Dolan:


    And racing on it at my local 200m indoor velodrome:


    And here's my old 2000 carbon fiber Trek that I sometimes use on hilly brevets:


    A more detailed view, at one of the checkpoints (at about 1 in the morning) on a 1000-km brevet in 2009, with the bike set up in randonneur configuration with Schmidt front hub and B&M lighting:

    I knew Dennis was going to do that! He sure has some beautiful bikes, particularly that VK-II. I'm going to try to come close, though, with my three offerings.

    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    OK, I showed you bike 7, but I never posted #6. This is built on an unbranded CF cyclocross frame from China, Alfine 8 IGH, compact double up front.

    Interesting. How do you pick out which one to take for a given ride?
