A little love for Enigma...

Wow The cable stops on the underside of the downtube are gorgeous.

The finish on the various Campy parts is incredible!

And you say, "This thing turned out fairly nice." Jeez man, understatement of monumental proportions ;-)

I think the enigma is nice but the brown painted stripes just don't work. The rest is great. Cycloretro does fantastic work

I think the bike is beautiful but personally I just don't care much for brown. Seems like you'd want gum hoods instead of black, too.

But as someone who is considering putting silver Potenza on his Peg, that polish and detail work on the groupset is mighty tempting.
