Have a look at this:
Is anyone else seeing the newsletter like this in their email? This is in Gmail, in Chrome; it looks the same in Safari.
Is this already a known bug?

This question came from our discussion, support, and feature requests site for people who build and repair bicycles, people who train cycling, or commute on bicycles.
We have pushed a fix for this, it will be in the next production build. Please confirm it's fixed next time you receive the newsletter. Apparently there was a weird gmail bug that strips the background color for some reason.
