I've seen the paint and it looks awesome. :D

Not sure whether to let the cat out the bag, won't have the frame for around 2 weeks..

Nearly there and looking exactly as intended so really pleased. Tom @ Parlee reckons it hurts his eyes!

It should just play with light, contrast between matt and gloss, neon red that looks pink and orange and reflective decals, ghost decals. So excited to build this. Everything else is black.

Good point, it's not a pista, Tom has always referred to it as the z1 Pista and its stuck.

It will be a single speed 49x17 for my 34 mile commute, quick after work blasts, centuries and above.

Geometry is road, the same as my z zero and will run both brakes and 2 bottle mounts.

My zero is a little less offensive, will post that when I have all the parts..currently sporting an old white handlebar while I wait for the waxed ones I had done that will ship with this frame..
