Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

The black looks a LOT better than the factory Axis paint.

Way cool. Be sure to total your "car miles saved." And then figure how much money you save by commuting. At least that's a motivator for me to commute. In addition to just enjoying the ride.
