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!

There's little bitty red accents on the chainring. And blood on the downtube, but that's a post-picture addition.

This thread seems kinda redundant to me, I thought all modern bikes were black. Thought I would break-up the carbon lovefest with some old-school black…

I retract my earlier entry and concede that modern black bikes are 'freaking' HOT. Your S-Works in particular...YEOW!

Yeah, that Parlee is 100% badass.
If he could lose the fourteen (!) EDGE decals it would be 150% badass.

Thanks. Front and back wheels are the same. I took the decals off the front to see how it looked, and now think I might want to put them back on. Of course, the cost of the decals has meant that she how has two different shoes, a look that, frankly, I am getting pretty used to.

Nice. You figured out how to post the big pics.
I'd say decals on both wheels!

After swapping out components and tweaking things I finally got this one feeling good.



The white saddle will stay on until Specialized gets more black Phenom saddles in stock.

It's 10" on my 61cm frame size. And I still have some saddle-to-bar drop.
