Something about a nice deep section wheel like that just makes any bike look fast sitting still. Totally love it. A nice set of gumwalls on there might not keep the super stealth aesthetic you're going for but to me really make deep wheels like these pop.

That thing looks incredible - the wait for the paint appears to have been worth it.

Can you share a build list? Specifically curious about seatpost, bars, and wheels.

powder coat

I feel like a nice powder coat is just prohibitvely expensive no? Is there any way around that?

Getting something like this might not be the cheapest option, but Zank's powder coated frames start at a base price that is $400 cheaper than wet paint - $1900 vs $2300 for Alu framesets. Surely some of that difference is the fact that the carbon fork can't be powder coated but it can't account for the whole difference.

Powder

To add to this...
I have a powder coated frame and a wet paint frame as well.
While the paint is beautiful and has a nice depth and all, it lacks in the durability dept. - Lots of chips and scratches.
My powder coated frame is bombproof. - Impossible to scratch.
The win on the Zanconato is that it looks like paint but is tough as nails like powder coat should be.
As of the fork not matching, it doesn't bother me at all.

Paint is WAAAAAAAY more expensive that powder, in every possible way.

That is what accounts for the price diff

Also, unless you MUST have some special color/finish, powder is absolutely the way to go on aluminum. Powder on steel is not as safe from rust/corrosion long-term because there is no primer base coat with powder. It will be fine, for awhile, but ultimately will start to wear/crack from UV exposure and such. Paint does not have this issue.

Beautiful bike OP! Color looks awesome, as does the build and proportions, zank makes a great frame, enjoy!

I actually just got off the phone with Mike and changed my upcoming frame from paint to powder. I have had quite a few powdered alu frames in the past and for some reason went with paint on my first two Zanks. Powder is definitely more durable though, that said, I have had no issues with the paint on my Zanks.

Years ago I somehow managed to ding my Time cleat (the old Equipe style two piece unit with the brass rear hook) on the top tube of one of my powdered alu frames really heavily and I had to look really hard and close to detect any blemish in the powder coat.

RE: Powder

Congrats on the new Zank!!!
What color are you going for?

My Hampsten has an absolutely gorgeous Delfin Grey paint job. BMW paint.
Granted I have ridden the hell out of it on and off road.
But I did find the paint to chip easily. Still looking sharp but the under carriage is
pretty rough. Maybe I have Steve do a Slurpee scheme on it someday.
