Like a stealth fighter - very nice! It is one of the coolest I've seen. I guess you are very attached to the saddle, but have you considered changing it ?

Maybe the SMP Stratos, for example?

I've been using the brooks for maybe a couple of months, and it just gets better every time I ride it. It has the butt dimples and just feels like a butt vacation.

Nice bike, Falkon.
If I see someone put risers on a TK2, I will personally hunt them down and beat them to death with a pedal wrench.

I had built the rear wheel before hand with a velocity rim, DT Champion spokes, and a Phil Wood track hub.

Could I hold you bike after jyo? I think an SMP Stratos would look hot on that bike.

It's only too bad you have a machined Deep V on there. An unmachined rim would go even further towards the Super Stealth look. Maybe a black Campy Skeleton brake up front too.

But that's just me. I dream of someday owning an entirely, completely black bike. It'd be a death trap on the road, but it would be preeeeetty.

(edit: And yes, I was kidding about the risers. Though I'm sure someone, somewhere has done it.)

My just completed road bike. I'm starting to get used to the skinny tires although the drop bars are really something I have to get used to.

Sorry about the blurry pictures, I didn't want to use the flash and didn't have a tripod with me.

Merci! Too bad the silver saddle was better suited on the road bike. Would have looked great on my mountain bike (a repost, but this one is my true love)

Want to know something funny? That's my dream too. What a coincidence.

Sweet! Black is the new black, after all, and riding around at night dressed as ninjas on jet black bikes, scaring the crap out of people is the new, uh, whatever used to be popular.

My housemate is building up a black fixie, except we came up with an alternate idea of all black but with a chrome fork. Put twining floral/vine decals on the fork and powder coat for a cameo effect. Stealth black, yet totally girly. Should we start a "bikes of the household" thread, do you think?

I want a rat rod road bike. Nice frame, good components, but flat black paint with white and red von dutch pin stripes. Maybe have the rims painted red with one white stipe. Not a cruiser style like this, modern road bike but painted in this style.
