Looks great. :thumbup:

A weight, with the paint, would be a great reference to have?

Millenstein Clinchers are ordered & on their way.
I have decided on the THM M3 crankset.

The Lightweights don't have a full gloss finish but are also not fully matte.
Has anyone seen the Lightweights up close with the M3 to know if the THM gloss or matte finish is a closer match?
I'm thinking matte.

Definitely an excellent lighter color choice for the frame, much better than white. Although my personal taste would have been the matte finish, it is still reasonably light as you did it.

What size is the frame?
