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!

My black bike rebooted! Also I found black gel nail polish to be awesome touch-up paint for black frames. I then add another coat of clear nail polish to cover any scratches or marks!

Thank you. I am not typically a fan of mat based paint, but I love the ride quality of this bike and I lucked into this, and was not even looking for it. Couldn't pass it up. The finish has grown on me.

I think it must be some sort of bike lock.
