Thanks a lot for all those opinions!
It's a great idea with the flag - something similar had Blaža Klemenčič (she is a professional MTB rider) and she had a Felt MTB with a flag on the headtube:
but I only make a frame per year and it wouldn't make sense to invest in it.
See now that is a problem, we need to get you making more frames! Especially since you are doing such a damn fine job at it.
. Probably it's really time to think about custom framebuilding and offer it. I even have some more ideas how to make some moulds for it, but didn't realized it yet because it would be too expensive for me at this moment. Otherwise in general the idea is that the chainstays and downtube would have a "closed end" that would perfectly fir to the BB (with a large area). That would mean less reinforcements needed and of course better weight/stiffness ratio...so that might be an option, as long as I'm making also the tubes by myself, and I prefer it like that. I was also in contact with some companies that could provide me the tubing, but aren't serious, don't know if it's because my age, but at least I get that feeling sometimes,...anyway, I decided to stick with my own tubing, for me it's not a real pleasure to buy the tubes and just put them together, I love to experiment with different layups etc.,...
Back to the frame painting, all opinions are welcome! I won't rush with it and will take a few days to think about it. Here the Slovenian flag for some more inspiration, if I try to make something in that way..
