I know you like it, but it must be on every thread in the whole forum!

Is it glow-in-the-dark, by the way?

I only posted it because I knew it would get under your skin--and because it's purdy.

And it does not glow in the dark, but when the sunlight hits the custom-blended ceramic coating the bike takes on a beautiful, iridescent look that you rarely see anywhere else.

Taylor Swift recorded a song about people like you.

All of my bikes are either black or charcoal colored. Plain and ugly... but they get the job done.

Pretty comfortable (sometimes beauty is perceived more by the seat of the pants than by the eyes).

IMO function and reliability are far more important. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and probably get into the snobbery thing again.
