Liking the color and buying a frame with this color are two different stories.

Hum, it looks like the 80's are coming back ... is it a good think? I doubt :?

Anyway, it strongly contrasts with this (timeless) beautiful bike :

But hey, taste is an individual thing.

So why not post a colour you like instead, that has nothing to do with bikes, except that Florian will lock it for being OT :!: :lol:

ya exactly. everybody has different tastes. for me personally I love blue colors. I like it more on the darker side.

here is one fully equipped. The frame changes shade depending on the different lighting there is.

The Fondriest paint schemes look extraordinary, yet my heart pines for the simple, classic, vibrant hues of Cannondale viper red. :cry:

All the bikes with coloured carbon will slightly heavier than those with the plain black weave. The colour is just a nylon or nylon/carbon weave that is dyed to the desired colour.

Paul Ringle has a lot to answer for doesn't he? (anodiseded all his parts purple originally so they would stand out - and other manufactures copied).

Well fondriest achieves that color by blending aluminum colored threads to the carbon threads for the final layer of the frame. that's why it gives that nice shinny color and as a plus also increase the stiffness from what they say.

the frame doesn't weigh more because of that. it's the same weight as the magister which it is based on.
