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.

Orange is bold and beautiful. So is your older blue bike.

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.

How do you find the Arenbergs on obmermeyer? The widest tires I have tried on those rims are the Veloflex carbons.


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