HOLY SHIV!!! TT bikes make such good canvas. I'm sure Red Bull colours would look awesome, but now I'm thinking how about McLaren chrome/red(also since they have ties with Specialized)?

Was it chrome dipped? I'm not aware of any other effective methods for chrome plating anything but metal.



To my novice eyes looks like either a cosmichrome or spectra chrome job.


Good eyes. It is spectra chrome!

A McLaren livery was my first thought when I started thinking of designs, but I don't think I can leave my Red Bull design behind

I am guessing you paint for a living? Looks professional anyway.
