Couple of quick shots of Mike's frame before its shipped. It turned out great and I'm very happy with it. Mike chose a paint scheme similar to the old Team Splendor bicycles from the 80's. The sun makes the blue look much lighter than it really is but with the yellow and black contrasts it looks good regardless of sunlight or clouds. I like paint that appears different colors in different conditions and this one does it. Mike was the second customer to let me paint their frame and now I'm addicted to painting, maybe its just the fumes, naw, I like all the wild colors too. I learned a lot more while working on this frame, mainly about applying the clear coat. I have my methods a little more dialed in and I plan on improving it with practice.
MEECH stem made from the top-shelf stem building components from Paragon Machine Works while the engraving was done here locally by my good friend Mark from Mainline Awards. He has engraved bb shells, stem plates, and bar caps for me every since we moved to Mountain Home and he always does an excellent job. Thanks Mark. I wish I would've had a little aluminum polish to really make this thing shine. Theres still time.
Handmade carbon chain stay protector. Stickers, no way.
Ok, well this is a decal because I definitely can't paint this good but Mike wanted to fly the Pegasus logo on his stem as well. I cleared over it to make it cleaner and theres no chance of the edges fraying. "Fly with MEECH."
These colors together just pop.
For some reason I can't get enough of these photos.
Thanks for giving me a shout Mike. I enjoyed working with you on this. Its always a pleasure getting to meet new people while building their a frame. One of the fringes of being a custom frame builder.
Thanks for checking it out.
