Thanks everyone, I'm very pleased with how this one turned out. Sometimes I know from the start what the end product is going to look like because the customer is very clear and other times the frame evolves through each step and I'm given some creative freedom. I much prefer the latter option. In this case Eric just wanted pearl white with some red and silver accents. I played with the idea of silver and red logos, red logos and silver bands, silver logos and red bands then decided to have a contrasting headtube against the pearl white main frame and use the bands to tie into the headtube color. There should be a complete build in the next couple weeks as this one is in transit across the U.S.

The creative freedom turned out perfectly. My hope was to build a new school meets old school so to speak. Turns out the new school steel is certainly compatible with todays parts, thanks to Aaron. Windy weather here in PA today gave me the opportunity to build. I had a Di2 gruppo hanging around and the process started. Bar end Junction A from our friends at Bike Tires Direct completes the stealth look. Waiting on an OSP from ceramic speed, and it'll be on the road soon.

Good eye Had my new short Lupina mounted on it originally, but opted for my standard length Lupina. This post will definitely be turned around, as it will look better and I have the extra rail length to accommodate. First time using 3T, and I like the versatility.
