Is that a bike in the black/white/red colorway?, how unique, and matte black colored bike with ‘understated’ graphics gee never seen that before, back in the day (couple o’ years ago) I could distinguish a Trek from a Fuji from a Wilier from a Raleigh from a Stevens from an Orbea from……..now “I can’t tell one from another, make it up as we go along”.

ec: when you’re buying a frame measured in hundreds of grams, the 80-90g of a full paint job kind of defeat the purpose. That said, I’m sure your LBS can get unicorns airbrushed on the frame if you’ve got the scratch.

Some people just have to bitch. Ride it, love it, rock it, crash it, paint it… wutevah. I have an Imperiale and a Xenon in the garage and they look great together, but I couldn’t care less. They both ride like mad and get loads of compliments. This new Xenon looks amazing to my eye. Well done Stevens.
