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!

If it is not black, just paint it black.

I assume that you're running the G-One Speeds tubeless? How was your experience getting them mounted on the AR41? There are a couple posters on the board that are interested in that wheelset but are being scared off by internet *****ing from a couple people. I have older Reynolds (Assaults) and haven't had an issue with any Schwalbes, including the Speeds, which are my tire of choice right about now.

I tried to "friend" the real Gianni Motta on Facebook but he turned me down.
