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

Looking for a specific bike look

Hi everyone,
I'm looking for a specific road bike look/frame. I can't find it on Google images and don't know the maker but I thought I could try to describe it here and someone might be able to point me in the right direction. Anyway, I'm looking for a bike (frame) that has all black outer areas. Black handles, tires, spokes, cranks, saddle etc. and the outer part of the frame is also black but the inner side of the frame is white (or a different colour). I don't know if I have explained myself properly but if anybody knows what I'm talking about and knows a bike like that could you please let me know.
Cheers.

What material is the frame? (Steel, aluminum, carbon fiber, titanium?)
Does it have a horizontal top tube or a sloping one?
Is it an aerodynamic frame or a general road bike frame?
Are the tubes thin like older bikes or made of different shapes like modern road bikes?
Are there other decals?
Does the brand's name stretch along the downtube?

I found the sort of thing that I was looking for but had trouble explaining. It looks like the front of this Prorace But the seat stays, chain stays and back half of the seat tube are also black. I saw someone riding at night and it kind of looked like they were just riding a frame with no wheels. Has anyone seen anything like this around?

Sounds like an Orbea Orca, maybe.

Just about every manufacture has a bike that is some combination of black and white. And this bike you want use to identify you saw someone riding at night? So we are guessing on a black and white bike that you saw riding at night... even if we get lucking and name the bike I doubt you would be certain that it is correct.

I think those Orbeas look like the one I saw. I know it wasn't much to go by but thanks for the help. Am thinking about getting a road bike (have never ridden road bikes before) and just thought I would start my research by the look of the bike to begin with. Thanks for all the help guys

Those Orbeas that you saw have been replaced by a newer model for a few years now. The model is the Orca. Go to their web site and look at the new model/colors as this seems to be what is motivating you.
