The black is quite nice. I have a matte black Rize X, and a red RX Pro. I do love the red, but the black one is very stealth and cool looking with the little red stripe accents. The ONLY complaint I have about the matte black is that it readily shows dust and every muddy splash or little oil stain/chain dribble. The glossy red takes a lot of dirt before it really looks dirty, and I'm sure the silver would be similar or even better.well, Small snafu, I received my fedex number and then got a call from Rize, telling me I ordered the last Silver bike....but they can't find it, lol.
They were good about communicating with me so my option was to get the black mat verizon, which shows to arrive on Monday from Carson, CA.
I originally wanted red, out of stock so I chose Silver,,,gone awol, and ended up with black.
