Then we get the wildly exciting idea of replacing it with something ~44x more awesome (or so we tell ourselves over and over until it is 44x more awesome). We save our $ and research the choices within an inch of our life before pulling the trigger. Before long, our new bike has accidental scratches and marks from use - and is "old." Then we're happily "just riding along" on our old, perfectly fine bike again when...

Comes in all sorts of colors to match your frame color-black is hardly going to stand out on a carbon frame and hides chain grease well.
