    I'm getting in on this late, but do you do your own paint? If not, who painted the digi urban (snow?) cam?
    Auk's words to live by:
    Blow up and pin a picture of M. Bartoli on your wall. When you achieve that position, stop. Until then, stretch, ride, stretch, ride, eat less, and ride more.

    I do all of my own paint. The digital camo is actually vinyl vehicle wrap. The letters on the DT I cut using my vinyl cutter which was easy peasy, but the ST was a PITA trying to stretch and cut around the direct mount braze on. Everything was then matte clear coated twice. I think it came out good for my first try using vehicle wrap! Thanks for asking.

    I get to see lots of Nate's bike since I live in Augusta...you can spot a Zukas a mile away by the paint. I'm partial to his personal bike with the red seat tube.
    Insubordinate. And Churlish.

    Thanks! The red ST frame now looks like this. Ferrari red ST but now with light blue instead of silver. Nice to be able repaint whenever I want to!

    That's actually my road whip! Campy record 11, lugged with seatmast and the skinny s-bend 10mm stays with internal cable routing. I walked into the area with both bikes and saw DW and asked him if I could set this bike behind the curtain since the "new" builders are allowed to display one bike and I have entered this one for best road bike. He said " but wait new builders can only enter for best new builder judging". So I told him the NAHBS website allowed me to enter this judging! He looked puzzled didn't say much so later in the day a NAHBS volunteer came by requesting my entry. So there it is hanging in there with a tough crowd! Oh yeah, I'm bringing it to BALLERS!

    Thanks Darrel! I executed the work but cannot take full credit. The customer and his girlfriend came up with the design and colors. Usually I will be given some color ideas and then asked to do something with it. This time was a lot easier!

    Was at Kroger over the weekend and had to go look myself, very cool, and congrads!

    Wife graduates on Thursday...hopefully certified/licensed and employed by mid July, then I'll be getting a deposit in. Hopefully the wait isn't too terribly long by then ;)

    Awesome scheme! May I ask how much weight does such a bright, apparently-thick paint add to the bare frame?

    Headtube pannel reminds me of those german army vest so many people like to wear in the street. (me included)

    Base coats are pretty light, Its the clear coat that can add weight. 2 coats with sanding in between equals smooth finish without adding the mass!
