I really like the tan sidewall and either wheel set, and the Flite saddle, but the rest of the bike is really the point! Congrats on a well executed build. :beerchug:

I really mean it.
Perfectly balanced.
Love the tubing.
Love the full white scheme and I'm usually a hater of white seatpost and stem...

Kudos :thumbup:

Unfortunately I have to conclude that matt white wasn't a good choice. Impossible to clean and to vulnerable (paint chips very easy compared to the previous gloss black finish). So things have to change and the change is called gloss RAL 3005 wine red.

Other changes:
- 10sp Record except for the 10sp Chorus cranks and brakes.
- Record seat post
- Record bottle holders
- custom painted Syntace F99 stem
- return of the downtube shifter for the front derailleur
- white Fizik Alliante saddle
- white Hudz grips

Yes, the matt white paint is all chipped and dirty. Fact it already started to chip when the headset and stem were installed. Hardly leaves me a choice. The gloss clear coat is much stronger than the matt clear coat and because the gloss coat is also much smoother it will attract less dirt and grease. And all-in-all wine red will be more subtile than gloss white, which suits the frame more.

The nicest incarnation was the gloss black...... sorry to say but the saddle looks incongruous on that bike no matter how comfortable.......

Love how you have stuck with the same frame all this time. :D

May I suggest leaving the seatstays unpainted and polished instead? You can also leave a thin sliver before each edge especially at the headset and BB so the paint does not peel when you install.

just get another shade of white with a better coating to survive the chips better..... white looks very clean.
