Hi all,

I've been lurking this very forum for the last few years but never really posted! Afraid to admit I haven't gone in any other section than this one as looking at bikes on the internet is almost as fun as riding them..

I'd like to introduce myself, my name is James Langton, 21 years young from Leicester - UK.
I own a custom bicycle paint-work business and spend my time working with clients to produce cool paint-work or I'm out on my bike getting lost around the British countryside.

I own a '12 (think?) Cannondale CAAD10 Liquigas running a mixture of SRAM Red/Force/Apex with Mavic Aksium wheels. I'd love to take this off the road and repaint, upgrade parts etc but I just ride it too much to take it off the road. I have so many projects at the moment that this is my bike I do absolutely everything on, I love it!

I have 5 or 6 steel projects ranging from Reynold's 531c all the way unto 953 which I'm at different stages of building them with some unique parts and paint but for now here's my Cannondale..

Image

Fairly basic spec running a mixture of Sram Red/Force/Apex but I really enjoy it. I do have quite a large collection of steel bikes which are conveniently all in for paint-work and rebuilding at the moment which are going our signature colour;

Here's what it's going on, my 1987 Gazelle Champion Mondial AB

Here's one we made earlier in our signature colour mixed above

Thanks for the comments!

Our signature colour has gone down a storm. Blowing my own horn but it's absolutely stunning in real life, it's a 3 part colour with a special primer, base coat and clear using Japanese mother of pearl, the colour in the flesh is deeper but brighter than any candy.

I really don't want to turn this into a advert as I'm sure this thread will get deleted but I'm really passionate about bicycle paint. We flat, polish and wax all our frames plus we detail all our personal bikes.

More pictures on Cycle Exif.. http://www.cycleexif.com/insight-no-quarter-paint

Another steel bike but we're pretty darn good at painting carbon and alloy, too.

We also work with extremely talented sign-writers - no decals here all by hand.

That is indeed a stunning purple, and a beautiful job on the Rourke as well. Would love to see those bikes get built up.

If you want to trial your signature colour on a 2012 CAAD10, you can use my frame. I wouldn't even charge you!

Seriously though, lovely work.

That last one looks like my old Trek Madone. Amazing attention to detail! I love how the colors pop (yes, even the matte gray frame)!
