HOLY SHIV!!! TT bikes make such good canvas. I'm sure Red Bull colours would look awesome, but now I'm thinking how about McLaren chrome/red(also since they have ties with Specialized)?

To my novice eyes looks like either a cosmichrome or spectra chrome job.


Good eyes. It is spectra chrome!

A McLaren livery was my first thought when I started thinking of designs, but I don't think I can leave my Red Bull design behind

What happened to the brightness of the chrome? Sanded for paint adhesion?

No I don't myself, but the guy painting the frame does motorsports helmets for a living.
