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!

In direct sunlight, there's a multi-colored shimmer to the base black.

Will look even better with the November RFSC 58s on it.

And, I saw the "red" thread. But I thought Blue was the bike company...not the color.
