I went to my lbs to browse new bikes and it reminded me a lot of when I was a kid in the grocery store and looked at the generic food that had black and white labels. All new bikes are just that. Black and white. Bland. When I ride, I have an extreme sense of euphoria and I think a bike should reflect that in colors. Personally, I just don't see how someone could ride an all black bike, it just seems to negate everything that bike riding is all about.
    I have four bikes and they are all black so I guess I can't relate.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

I own houses in both the US and Canada, I know exactly where either dollar stands.
    That's great but this is all still irrelevant to this thread. Less talk, more bikes for us to lay our judgement upon.
    Attack in the feeling because it says I'll win absolutely.

    Maybe it's the angle, but those cables look a little on the short side.

    Added this Ritchey Breakaway (travel bike) to the stable, scrapped together mostly from winter bike parts and a few things lying around. I just had to buy the frame/fork/headset, a seatpost, a front derailleur, and a bottom bracket. What say ye Hot or Not?:

    Yeah yeah, them's just for photos. The bike will mostly live with some low-profile wheels with a powertap.

    Hot! I'm probably in the minority, but I love the subtle blue touches and would probably get a matching blue seatpost clamp to finish it off.

    I agree with this. I like the subtleness of it.

    Here it is, back from the painter. A Giro/Baum inspired paint job, painted by Jack Kane of kanebikes.com.

    A couple minor things to finish up... wire wrap the excess wires up front, chainstay protector. It was so easy to install and dial in the EPS system; it took more time dialing in the ZG brakes. I'll be taking it out for its first EPS ride tomorrow, and will take a much better pic out on the road.

    Speedvagen... Yes, please.

    Very nice, guys! This page is off to a smashing start - not the time to sneak in a commuter.
    They look like big, good, strong hands, don't they?

    Not, just too much color. Only black plastic bikes are hot, sorry. Maybe you could send it back to Jack and tell him to try to get it right this time.
