Finally got something finished up to post. As simple as this paint scheme looks it took me a while to get it right. I can be pretty picky at time, especially when my name is on something. I don't think I can ever say I'm completely satisfied but at some point you just have to lay it down and let it be. After all, it was built to be ridden, not looked at. But I like looking at them. This is more of an older, traditional style frameset but I tried to give it more of a modern twist, or maybe just a MEECH twist. It's funny, I was really excited to start building this frame, it started with the fork, and then I've worked on it so long that the excitement had worn off. But the other day while I was shooting these pictures and really looking at the bike I became excited again and thought, "I want to ride this bike." Then I realized that it's not my size and immediately got bummed out. So then of course my reaction was, "Now I have to build one for me."
I wasn't the first one to use these colors of course.
Remember this fork? I know it's been a while. This is a 30c Kenda Kwik tire fitted up under a standard Campy road caliper. It's always nice to have a little extra space if you need it. This bike will make a great winter training bike.
No head badge yet but they're on the way.
Not sure where this idea came from, the ideas just come and I have to do them or I can't rest and move on to the next one. Kinda like the Lords of Dogtown frame or the Frankenstrat frame.
I used to run this number on one of my mx bikes years ago. Novice class of course.
