Please don't turn this into a race thing, especially just in front of the election. It's a pure bike thing, in a vacuum, and that's how you should look at it. (I know that's asking a lot, considering how well I know you and your adversarial and highly-political nature.)
But honestly, I'm pretty radically opposed to fostering the excessive use of black as a dominant bike theme. I was, at one point, but now I'm not. Everyone has to go through the stealth phase I suppose. I know I did. And I have those two bikes that I will have to live with for a long time, to remind me.
These days though, my psychological backlash calls for COLOR. There's plenty of inherent and unavoidable black in every bike (and I mean that in the most respectful way) and black is a fantastic complementary partner to any scheme, but let's not get carried away. (Or maybe you should be preaching that line to me, since I seem to be going off the bling deep end these past few months.)
Jeez. I've gotten way off track.
The stock forks have offended my highly-tuned aesthetic sensibilities since day one. And now they do not. That is all.
