I glass beaded the frame this morning and shot the etch prime. The fame and fork with the uncut steerer weigh just a few grams under 4 lbs. Pretty cool, and I'll bet lighter than my old carbon frame set. This week end is dedicated to riding, then company for a week, so this is it for a while. As I have time, I will try to sneak work in on the rain bike.
After a few creative beers with some friends, the livery has been established. It will be a true Candy Apple Red with Glo Star Metallic Silver accents. Of course, now I'm wondering how red pipes and silver lugs would look rather than all red.
