Very nice. How did you do this.. did you have a paint shop apply the paint or did you do it yourself.

Thanks guys, I painted it myself, took quite a while sanding the frame back to bare carbon then paint, sand, paint, sand, etc. But very happy with the result.
The frame was weighed 720g when bare. Will weigh it tonight and see how much weight i added witht the paint and graphics.

That's sharp. Looking forward to seeing it built up. Are you doing components (stem/seatpost/bars) to match?

I agree with all the others here, it is certainly a sharp looking paint scheme, are the Cannondale and EVO logos painted also. If so may I ask how you cut the paint masks?

That's going to build up super classy.

The finish looks fantastic for a DIY job!

Have you done paint work like this in the past or is this the first crack at it?

That looks fantastic...! Props on the great work.
The teal definitely pops.

Are you planning on colour matching the teal on any components?
Seatpost, stem or wheel decals etc.

always good to see some custom paint!
Just out of curiosity, any weight difference before/after?

Thanks guys, appreciate the kind words,

Yes, the they are decals that were made up by "paint my bike" here in Aus. They do some awesome work!

In regards to weights;
Original frame weight: 792g
Bare frame weight: 720g
New paint and decal frame weight: 760g

I cant remember the original fork or bare fork weights but it weighs 302g now.

I wasn't planning on customizing the entire build but it's got me thinking! I have a Deda super zero seat post, bars and stem. 2012 Sram red, and no wheels as yet.
I'll post some pics up as it progresses.

Don't paint match the components. Very lawyer/Parlee build esque IMO.

Love the teal, had a similar idea at one point but definitely couldn't have done this good of a job on it.
