I need that bartape
I had some made by Orlowski a few years ago for not loads of money!
Shame they only have the crowns from Ceeway.
Grandis Max just arrived in south london. Great seller from Italy. Arrived in 10 days well packed and as described. Now to start thinking about the build ... and eventually a repaint.
It's my first max frame and I must say the profiling of the toptube and down tube are very handsome indeed.
Lovely frameset. Not a fan of the colour matching stem tho. Would go for shiny silver.
Yeah, white bikes are risky and I think can look cheap. This one is great, but agree that the stem is too much white!
New to white bikes and new to Max... I am excite!
What a lovely purchase! I'd say since it's a grandis stem, might as well try it on, at least as a mockup. Just don't build it with santé and white tyres :)
Such a tease...
Yep hearing the too much white & stem comments hence a repaint ... when I can get to it. I have a colour scheme in mind.
Fantastic grandis, lovely details. Throughly worth of a respray, chrome still looks new.
who are you thinking about getting to repaint it? I've just got hold of a somec (elite SX in columbus SLX) I'm about to build up... subbed to your build to nick your ideas ;)
Or while it's white already: DIY smokey candle paint job?
Not my photos but it’s this... and it’s not all Max...
Looking good. Quality as always from Roberts.
white tyres ... well now you mention it ... and once its built up I can polish my teeth extra white as well !!
I will repaint it myself. I have a booth and kit etc. set up at home and do it as a hobby. At the moment its just finding the time. I have a backlog of nice bits of Italian steel waiting for a respray!
Obs. there are a bunch of great bike spray specialists that could do the job. Probs. is if you want quality, detail, painted decals and not stickers, etc. then it gets expensive.
thinking something along these lines ...
can I add my somec to your queue ; )
Ha would love to. The day job is getting in the way. Unfortunately spray painting wont pay the mortgage and run the family!
I say go for it!
Just ditch that flag if that racist twat stays in office tomorrow.
That's pretty much my dream frame.
