looks great but such a good-looking bike deserves to have the rear brake closed and the chain on the big ring! Make it picture perfect so the rest of us can live vicariously!

Thanks all. So many paint options, but this one speaks to me. And, it was in stock.

I know. In my haste, things weren’t fully set. I was more worried about my toddler trying to climb it (which, he was attempting). Mea culpa.

Can we make vinyl wraps of this paint scheme for other bikes!? Absolutely beautiful and very fitting.

I started going through the "maze" when I had it in the stand. I didn't get very far. I need a bunch more time to see if it truly is maze. Regardless, it's a schweet scheme.

If this paint were a classical tune, it would be a scherzo movement. Just like me.

As a complete non-artist, what blows me away is thinking about how Dario (or whomever painted this) came up with the paint colors for this scheme. I suspect the scheme might be easier and based on doodles or a vision they had....but the colors are so perfect, that it really requires a mastery of pigments and colors to know what works with what.

I respect the Ciavete paint as it's art in its own right, but to get paint this complimentary on such a complicated design is truly amazing.
