Awesome work!

Get your painter to sand and paint the FSA cranks flat black too!

em3, the usual story of a contact of a contact of a chinese cycling friend. production sample could actually also mean production excess or non-cervelo qc passed frame.

did some short rides already.
initial impressions.
-eps, nice solid sound when shifting (youll know you have shifted already, compared to smooth di2)
-for gloss carbon rims brake tracks (bora, racingspeed, ax, extralite, etc), campy carbon pads work best!
-rotor q-rings, first time user, funny pedaling feeling initially which goes away after some time.

400 to sand the topcoat and paint off. then 800 to smoothen.

Crazy paintjob!! Pure bikeporn!

It reminds me of Sylvain Chavanel's orange Specialized and the orange Scott he's ow riding at TdF.
Looks as nice as the Kinesis Aithein in orange posted in this topic.
Now I'm sure: orange is the new black.

Sweet bike, very nice colour and a nice contrast to all the black bikes now days.

Man, what a built! :up:
I love the paintjob! WOW! :thumbup:
GREAT JOB!

There are only 2 things I do not like:
- silver bar tape....I would love black
- FSA cranks....I would go Campa
