Really nice bike! Like what you did with the crankset keeping the red graphics.

What type/color paint and where did you get it done? It has a real "wet" look. Cool. :thumbup:

Wow, looks like wet paint. Has to be the best BOB black I have seen.
Great to see an older bike refinished so well.

I like it too and it reminds me of the direction of the fixing bolt (why it is different from other UT bolt? :noidea: )

I did the paint together with my friend, we are not experienced and may be able to do it better next time :)

the frame is sub 900g including drop out, FD clamp and seat collar (up to the standard nowadays?)
whole bike is around 6.2 kg (Enve 6.7 is not really a WW stuff... :roll: )
