Road Bike

White (technically "beer foam" is what the manual calls it)
Condition of Bicycle / Distinguishing Features: 
Purchased within the past year, so relatively new. There was also a cheap rear rack that gripped the frame, instead of being screwed in the normal way. The pedals had been upgraded to metal, instead of the factory plastic, with reflectors on only one side of the pedals. One of the front spokes had a slight bend. Had a standard On Guard u-lock mounted on the interior.
