That was my thinking. The fg scene is pretty big in the UK so there WILL be fixed specific bike shops (hell, we've got one here in little ol' Adelaide - used to have two but Kim now works out of his house). Even if you jump on the train and spend a day in London, you'll be a lot better off shopping for bikes for real than mucking about on the internet.
And why black? I've had a black bike and it's a stupid colour for a bike. I've got a black car now, and it's still a stupid colour for something that goes on wet roads. Each to his own I guess, but while black looks great when clean and shiny, that doesn't extend to when it's dirty.
