Show off your black bike

I didn't like black bikes for a while, but a few round these parts have made me think again. they looks especially fine with color accents, carbon wheels, and gumwalls.

I'd love to see what you guys do to prevent the full blackout look, little bits of color here and there can really set things off.

So lets see your black or mainly black bikes.

PS, yup, still winter

Gumwalls, gold chain, colored hubs. Everything else black.

Have posted this before, but luv my black Paramount, 75th Anniversary-style (and yes, I have long since fixed the crap bar wrap job from when it was new and I was still tweaking the position). I like the contrast of the white panel, the white lettering in the classic Paramount font, the polished rear stays, the gum wall tubulars, the stainless polished lugs, etc. I had them make a steel fork with 6" chromed tips but haven't used it yet--the bike rides so well with the Enve fork that I haven't wanted to change it!

Rode hard and put up wet, as my dad would say, although he wasn't talking of bicycles ;-)

My nine year old son just finished his first bike overhaul with this mid 80s Centurion.

Only one of these I still have is the OPEN ONE+, but the others are worth a look I reckon?
