I ordered a couple of silver A-9's from Quality Bike Parts and when they came in this week one was silver, but the other was black anodized. Turns out that the one silver one was all QBP had, so they sent me the black one rather than nothing. Might mean nothing, but it also might mean that the Delta will soon be the only one carried ?
