I have been posting these updates over on Slowtwitch but thought the WW crowd might be interested....

The custom painting process on my Martini Shiv is finally done!!!!!! I should have the frameset in my hands next week. Once again, an amazing thank you goes out to Tyler from Censport Graphics for his amazing craftsmanship, time, and effort! Also thanks to Tai for the help with the S-Works decals. Many of you have already seen a lot of these photo's but I wanted to post everything from the beginning design concepts to the end.... I'll let the pictures do the talking..... Enjoy.

My Initial Sketch...

Decal ideas using a collage I made from old Porsche Factory Racing Posters....

You all know what a stock Shiv looks like.....quite boring if you ask me :)

Let the painting begin....

Trying to decide which decal....

More paint and other decals going on.....

Clear coat is finally applied.....

So while I am waiting for the rest of the components to come in, I decided to take a few pics outside, and put everything on the scale. Unfortunately I don't have the pre-painted weights, but it should give us a good idea. R&A Cycles had said a size L was around 4000 grams for the module.

Couldn't resist snapping a few pics in front of my favorite wall.....

And time for the scale....

Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

Misc Hardware including brakes..

Image

If my calculations are correct that's 4500 grams for everything pictured, assuming of course 1 seatpost and 2 bar extensions.

And the latest update is that the bike is at Colorado Multisport for Di2 installation....

Image

And trying to finalize wheels and decals...

Looking for input on people's thoughts and opinions with wheels and decal options...

I am leaning towards a Super 9 rear and a 808 FC front.

Some people may have seen the proposed decals I posted in other threads. I wanted the disc to have some sort of optical illusion look when spinning, that's where the idea of the dot pattern came from and I got that from Lance's 2009 Prologue bike. Each dot has a portion of the poster collage inside.The front wheel decals are just modified Zipp decals with the collage in the background to tie everything together. I know it's hard to tell from the photoshop, but I am starting to wonder whether the black wheels are now clashing with the frame (I'm thinking Navy to match the bike would look better), and whether the front and rear decals go well enough with each other. Everyones thoughts and opinions are appreciated....

Absolutely brilliant! But I silently hoped for a Martini LANCIA theme instead of Porsche ;)
