Beautiful. I'm imagining this with black lightweights -- that would be perfection.

Costs of re-paint depends on what new scheme you go for.

It does really pop in the daylight too. If that pic's weren't enough :lol:

Bouwmeester wheels. Great, locally made, wheels. Mellow knows his stuff! :thumbup:

Tinea,

Are my eyes playing tricks on me or did you change from a 3T to Enve (Edge) fork?

Anyway, as usual...this bike continues to amaze me.

Hats of to you for pulling it off. My wife bought me a pink Rapha Italian jersey a couple of years ago. I have to get up the nerve to wear it. I wore it yesterday on a 130k jaunt on country back roads. I get smiles from most people and dirty looks from others. Hey, at least the can SEE me! It's all about safety, right? :wink:

I certainly feel it's all about safety and being seen. No way anyone will miss me on the road now :lol:

And well picked up, fork is now an Enve :)

So I'm trying to explain your bike to a mate the other day-

"It's a steel bike, it's pink with red and black highlights and has a small green highlight just at the bottom of one of the fork legs. It looks amazing!"

My friend looked at me like I was crazy!.... then I showed him!

It's not easy to explain that this bike just... works.

Love it TP.

Wow, I missed the updated look until now. I remember admiring how well done your bike was when I first joined WW about a year or so ago, even pm'd you with a couple of questions. This new paint job really pops. I've never seen a Baum in real life over here, but I really like them from what I've seen online, especially yours.

Just noticed the green. Why? It looks a bit weird, I would have expected the grey, purple or black would work better there.

at the bottom of the fork?
well the LHS of the fork is red, and its a Giro inspired paint job, so i guess its probably in reference to the italian flag....
:noidea:
