It'd be much easier. But the Pearl, I would rather have a hidden bolt version. And they don't offer a silver ergo bar. Only in black. So I'd have to find something I like shape wise anyways.

I have bought an m106 in silver and at 26 mm center section too - I think it is "modern" curve but I am not sure it is "ergo"...

See, I like that bar. That wouldn't be a bad choice. But for an Italian bike, I'd want to keep it with an Italian bar, stem and post. But that Nitto bar is nice.

I want at least one. The black on white is beautiful and so is the blue one. I can't make up my mind. In 2018, I saw Doriano De Rosa and his then line at the NAHBS in Connecticut. Just beautiful. Looking at the photos of bicycles that I photographed at that show, and there were many great artisans there, the majority were taken of Doriano's bicycles and those of Chris Bishop's. Now to justify 3G's to my wife.

The black on white is really cool because it's not a gloss black, it's actually a charcoal grey. So it's dark but not too dark. And it has a matte clearcoat on the frame. It's a really nice contrast for that frame.

The blue/white, lovely colorway. Especially with the white have a bit of pearl in it. It's beautiful.

Lots of choices though. Happy to help you out when the time is right. If you ever wanted to show off your frame at a show, let me know. I have 2 in the works right now plus a media bike. As well as one in the early stages for next years show. Showing off client bikes is great. It gives attendees ideas they might never have thought about. Everyone is different so it's great to have a different perspective than always ours in the office.

Yeah, some of their pics are a bit dark. I usually pull the shadows back a bit.

They are using two lamps one on each isde. If they go w/ another high light almost backlight the pics will be just right.

It's funny cause it's only the studio shots with the black background. The workshop pictures are great. It's all lighting. It's a whatever cause I can adjust them here. Doesn't detract from the awesomeness of the bikes. That's all that matters in the end.
