Looks great! How does the matte finish hold up in real life? Any worries of making parts "satin" with wear?

I had the matte blue bike for a couple of years, wiping it down after every ride with an automotive matte detailer spray made by Chemical Guys. I think the spray helped retain the matte finish. Hottubes warned me against using any type of wax, which would kill the finish.

I see too many all black bikes (says the guy building one now, oops).

Kudos for not following the pack.



Thanks -- can't go wrong with black though.

It is truth about tyre width? Data @ LW site says 'Tyre width 19-27mm'.
I'm planning to buy 25mm (Continental Sprinter - sorry guys, dirty tarmac here) for my Obies, but now i'm troubled.

Edit: Good choice on color. Seems more faster than blue.

I know people comment that LWs are too narrow for 25mm tires (...).
