Did you choose the colors and design? Or did you send it to VC and say "have at it"? Somewhere in between?

I'm thinking of painting a new frame headed my way, and the choices, ideas are nearly overwhelming.

So you also etap'd it and took off cable adjusters, etc. Very clean. How are you liking the etap? Taking off the cable parts is a bold step - no going back to mechanical for you!

Thanks everyone!

I have had eTap on other bikes already and was all in. I didn't like the idea of drilling the frame for Di2.

At first I said I'm open to anything. We discussed budget so ideas suggested weren't going to blow my budget out. Finishes that they do like the Mapei livery definitely cost significantly more (Not that I was asking for that). The execution is flawless. Nice touch, there are no decals. That's all painted including the Serotta lettering.

Velocolour sent me 5 mock-ups and asked for my input. I chose this one (it was originally a little different) and then asked for the colour palette from one of the other designs.

I highly recommend working with Noah and Suzanne. They are an excellent team!

That machine always was perfect. Now it is a little more perfect. Nice work!

i was super impressed with all of the work of theirs i saw. i'm sure it's the same with your frame, they may look great in pictures, but you have to see them in some nice sunlight to really understand how a great paint job can be.

i'm probably going to have my own Serotta re-done somewhere down the line, and one other feature velocolour has up their sleeve are the custom head badges. man, i want one!

The fade is exquisite.
Yep... Me too. Cool looking fade, Serious paint scheme there...

Totally radical... Wow!

Given the paint and component choice, a real show stopper IMO.

Thanks for sharing this.

Out of interest, what rims have you used?

Wow, remember seeing this on IG! So awesome! So Velocolor also removed the cable stops? I remember reading somewhere that Moot wasn’t willing to eTapafied my old CR.
