New Reynolds hoops for the Look.

I am a happy man.

thanks everyone, i hope to add my own in a week or so. just dreaming at this point, absorbing the ideas to add to or enhance my own.

I dig white saddles and/or bar tape on all black bikes too.

I have never mastered posting pics on the Forum (just not tech head, I guess), so a word picture will have to suffice....

Imagine a circa 2008 59 cm Pegoretti Duende in the black ethnic paint (Reggie Baseball has posted pics of a very similar bike), but mine has 2006 Record (with carbon compact cranks), black Ritchey bars and stem and a brown Fizik Aliante, with matching brown Fizik bar tape. 32 hole Open Pros.

A bit heavy (but then so am I!)but beautiful, in my eyes.

Love it!

Hey, I like the full blackout look!

Sorry, this is the only pic I have of that bike, pre- all the red bits described above.
