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

It is very distinctive and stands out in a sea of black or white bikes...I get lots of comments wherever I go.

black and white are classic... fancy colors come and go...black and white is always there....all 4 of my bikes are black or white... a couple have some red in them too. Plus they can not tell what year they are by looking at the color....

It's a "real world" picture. Most of my rides are solo, so I have to carry the minimum (tube, CO2, multi tool and levers). In my pockets are my cell/cash, snack and a 3rd for "take offs" since the weather can be in the high 40s at the start and 60s when done.

This better?

Sorry. My bad. I missed the irony. I just read the words.

No problemo- my bad- It's always a good idea to make humor obvious on the interwebz.

Not like people have taken things the wrong way ever on the interweb

I've seen some jokes really backfire and never get fixed.

Anyway... back o the OP.

Nice bike, I like the color combo and the way it's applied. It's an attention getter but not screaming loud.

I'd roll it in a minute.

BTW... exactly want model and specs are it? Looks like a Domane.

Lesson: If someone doesn't know you- always make your intents very clear. Maybe I just should have said "It's Bee-u-tiful". I think the OP "got it" though.

And Psycholist, sorry if my 1st post in response to you was snippy. I shouldn't post when I'm in the midst of doing stuff outside, and just stop in for a break. I tend to read things too fast...and respond too fast!
