Not sure, came from Specialized like that, my guess is hydro dipped because a piece flaked off when i put the brakes on today, can't see it--but it definitely comes off.

The frame and fork don't complement each other, but for some reason it still looks cool!

Don't change a thing.

That is a sick setup - I love the paint & especially the fork!

This brings back memories of my custom painted Ridley. This Sprint is my type of bike. I love the fork because it literally stands out from an already flamboyant pink paint job.

Love the purposeful build. A great tool for speed. Just curious, does the speed cost some comfort? How would you describe the ride? Go like the wind, my son!

it is fast, but does sacrifice a bit in terms of comfort. I believe a round seat post could help with some of that. I have been running my HED+ tubeless Pro1 700x25s at 50psi Front/55psi Rear and it has been nice(r)
