Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

The midnight blue/metallic flake is rather dark and can easily be mistaken as black. Nevertheless, it looks gorgeous in the sunlight and does fall into the blue and black category:
