Followed this on your Instagram story... didn't look fun!
Finished result is epic!
Looks real clean Matt.
We just got some photos back from this one we painted earlier in the year...
have a look at more shots here...
Haven’t seen the finished bike yet. Certainly has a certain aura
Oh dear... is this gonna become a bad pun thread?!
Love this one - Manages to look super understated despite all the colours / techniques thrown at it. top stuff.
did you have any finshed shots of the bike?
possibly my favourite klein colourway - either this or coral
Genuinely blown away by some of the stuff on your website. I know where I'll be coming when I get my Rourke next year.
Fun one from this week:
It's very very nice !! Good job
Recent finish from Quirk.
It's nearly Christmas, so it must be time for another custom-painted Islabike frame. This time I didn't bother stripping the factory paint myself, but took it to a man round the corner who does sandblasting. He stripped the paint within 24 hours for a whole £20 for the frame and forks, and while the finish wasn't perfect, it's good enough for my ham-fisted efforts. This is where I've got to so far:
The red bits aren't really red - they're pearlescent pink. And although the picture doesn't show it that well, the front and rear have lots and lots of turquoise pearl. There are huge numbers of mistakes and blips, but hopefully nothing that a 5 year old will notice.
Another couple of recent ones from me. Both matte finish. The graphics on the Open are gloss.
Green bike is hot
Loving that matte mustard.
Last ones of the year from me:
That concrete Canyon pal. All about it.
Polished concrete mate!
Was super rushed getting the pics yesterday, unfortunatley most of the ones of the canyon came out slightly blurred. I think the speckle was too confusing for autofocus.
Was really diffucult to show the finish on the Parlee is it looks IRL too.
Saw the Open on their own site, very nice. In fact, all work shown here really splendid!
