New Dundee Cycles 29er Jewell carbon frame and fork custom painted. The painter nailed the design and the colors are gorgeous in person. The white has a pearl effect and the dark blue has a hint of metallic, all finished with a satin clear. Building it up this week. Stay tuned for more pics.

Wow! The paint on that looks incredible. I'm very partial to matte finishes... this one is awesome. Very unique look.

I love a pearl white. When it works, it really works.

Dundee Cycles uses a local painter. The font is one that Dundee Cycles uses for a logo. I came up with the design and colors and Chris at the shop helped tweak the design. They nailed it.

How is the fit of Kettle rotors in R1 calipers? I have not mounted mine yet, but it looks like they'll rub no matter how hard I'll try to adjust. I have 2010 model on the other hand.
