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

'09 Jamis aurora elite. Will be swapping out the wheelset to a pair of DT Swiss tk540's laced to ultegra Hubs once they've been built; the 105/cxp22 combo is decent but its spanked. I call this my darth vader bike😂

@Greiselman, I like the look, without billions of giant decals. Did you remove decals, or did it come that way?

It came that way... kind of a dull/matte black frame with glossy black text and a few red accents. I think it's a good look, too!

Bike I won in 2016 during an online charity auction for UHCCF (United Healthcare Children's Foundation)...was used for a promotional event for USA Cycling...then auctioned.
Felt Carbon F FRD frame, Shimano 105 group set...put in a bid of $800 and was shocked I won.
That said, it's a 56cm and at 6'1" I'm afraid it's just too small despite much higher stem (original Easton stem pictured). Did the UHCCF Century ride on it last Sunday and feel every one of those 100 miles.

I've got to start repairing/replacing starting with the basic wheels, the 23mm tires that are balding etc. or sell it for a larger, more Endurance geometry framed ride.

Will miss the looks it gets...

Bought this never-ridden 2016 R3 last month. No idea where it acquired the Ultegra crank. OEM was FSA. Im actually not mad about black bikes and most of my winter riding clothes are black, so Ill look a bit silly on it in a few months, but it does look sort of cool, I think.
