I do like the paint on this frame. It looks really thick and heavy. I think if you combine this with all black components and high end stuff it will be a spectacular looking bike. Good luck with the build and have fun with it.

my previous indoor photos were rubbish and heavily criticised with good reason, so here are daylight photos with a borrowed camera.

thanks for the tips and comments: especially savoured napD's which was class and among my favourite ever quotes i think :lol:
when i was in the pre-buying phase, images posted by shirshan, shinyboy and several others helped me decide. i genuinely try to pay that back now :beerchug:

if the paint doesn't appeal, your visit is hopefully not wasted - at least to appreciate the depth of precision and quality oozing from pegorettis :wink:

moderators let me know if these are too heavy and i will see your comment and reduce the sizes.

Great pics..... great looking frame(although still unsure of the extended headtube from an aesthetic point of view).

Looking forward to seeing the finished article :beerchug:

build slowly coming on. begun removing logos from the bars. there will be black bolts and no white logos when i'm done
Image

seat post shim will be painted black.
Image

couldn't locate resin downtube cable guides so painted alloy ones black. will also have black bolts
Image

3T seat pin will be completely de-logo'd and again, the bolts in the picture will be black
Image

starting to look like a bike

Dumb ? perhaps, but why do you need to shim the seatpost?

its a sensible question :thumbup:
the marcelo has 29.4mm dia seat tube which really limits your choice of seat post. so i've gone for a 29.4>27.2mm shim to open up the choice.

thanks napD: i borrowed a quality camera, and to be fair some tips from stefanR :wink:
