Show me your BLACK bike!

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Show me your BLACK bike!

Building a Caad 10 in a similar colorway. The white tape looks nice with the saddle.

Also they're the only ones who make a sexy seatpost with 32mm of setback. And I'm funny shaped, so I need it.

Thanks, it's a 2007. I like looks of the newer Bianchi TT bike better, but this one is much more than adequate for my TT ability.

Cool, gotta love those raises and I hope you enjoy it. I also have the 0 setback when I was using this bike for TTs (since then got a TT frame) so between us we have all three. Cheers
