Is that rattle can or spray?

I like the white a bit better. I'm actually thinking about painting mine white.

I agree, too many black bikes already IMO.

But to each their own, and if you like it better that's all that matters.

I have a feeling I'll be disappointed and it'll be spray, but if it's rattle can, I'd love to hear how you went about it.

badass, honestly badass, but you should add a line of gloss color or something jsut to make it stand out.

as some ppl say, there are too many black bikes out there (including mine) but thats because they look badass, so keep yours badass and add a little distinction

Halo's are still there, just not on in some of the pics.

I plan on putting some custom decals on but not much, i like the solid black look and matte black is my favorite.

Looks really good. Actually everyone with white bikes should follow your direction and paint their bikes black. That way ill be the only one with white and have all the attention.

My bike is matte black as well. I have a gold frame, and it is getting to where I don't like the gold frame.

I don't think i would really like a gold frame, I like mine being black and just having gold accents.
