We have talked many times about taking a vacation in Bozeman to meet Dave and Carl Strong. I know it's been a few years since Dave and Carl hosted a weekend that coincided with Dave's 10th anniversary as an individual builder. Maybe there is a 15th anniversary bike and get together in the near future. Hint hint

Is that 2019? I need to start saving... Those 10th anniversary rigs are the bees knees.

Color palettes are fun to look at for inspiration...

A careful pick of three colors out of either of these would look good with black components and any white lettering, as well as with the head-badge.

I'm super in to the turquoise/coral and red/turquoise/blue schemes. Good luck picking!

I have not had a fade in a long time and it is tempting.

I mean, regardless of what he's goes with we all know it's going to be for sale a few months after arrival...for a fraction of the price I need to have surgery to lengthen my legs.

I like that one as well, but they all look good. I can't wait to see all of the anniversary bikes, I'm pretty jealous of all that are getting them!
