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!

had to move this to the next page. By far the most beautiful (non ti) frame ive seen on BF in a LONG time. Lusting now.....

Had amazing times and adventures on that bike, at least for my freshman and sophomore years. Mine was the black and red with the stitched on bar "tape" that Moto was famous for. Oh, the memories.

My new black Z85. Just got this in April. Change the white tape out for black. The white was getting dirty anyway. Going to change out the white tires when I can afford it.

Not as cool as lot of the other rides here but I love it.

Change the white tires out when they've got no more miles left in 'em.

The good bike:



The wheels were replaced with silver CR-420s, these black ones got moved to the rain bike (below).

The rain bike:



My daughter chose the pink stuff, but it now has metallic blue bar tape and seatpost collar. Next time I change tape - not sure!

Doesn't bother me. I love how it rides, and bikes in my size always look a bit gawky.
