For us fashion weenies, how a bike looks is of supreme importance (in addition to weight)... and I have been pondering what paint job would look really nice. I still remember the Simoni spider bike very well, from 8-9 years ago, which is pretty high on my list.

I like BAUM's rich and elegant paint jobs, but I am more looking for a "special" one. In my mind, it should be unique, and should look nice from close up and afar.

My search did not turn up much (other than people really like GEO and PR00), so here goes...

Pls be kind enough to share what you may have (or have seen).

Pretty much any bike that has come out of the Vanilla Workshop.

haven't posted it yet in his thread, but this is one of the most elegant designs I've seen for a long time, pure class!

I also like the cipo CAAD3 with the stars, and the Caad 10 Gulf colour scheme.

Love the flag on the Cannondale fork. Makes it look like a "wavy" Pina fork.

I like TP's pink panther / Giro inspired Baum. And the project blue Spec SL2 that was posted recently.
