    The quality of the finish was never in question just that he’d not ticked the boxes I’d asked him to and had done a lot of things I don’t really like: stripes, mix of matte and glossy with hard edges and a gold, khaki, red, grey color scheme. Any of those elements on their own I could have lived with but they all added up to a paint job that just wasn’t for me.

    I flatted it back on Monday so it’s ready for a re-do but my man is on holiday for the whole of February and has a lot to turn around before he goes so chances are it’ll be into March before I get it back...

    Nothing wrong with the frame, just wasn’t happy with the paint job. I gave a loose brief and one very specific requirement, neither of which was met and it just wasn’t to my taste.

    I mulled it over before deciding on a re-paint but I put too much effort into this to settle for a paint scheme that’s not to my tastes. Also from a personal pride point of view: I make custom bikes and I want my own bikes to be a good example of my work and ones that I’m proud of. It’s a shame as it means a delay, more money and I’ve had to offend a friend and collaborator.

    I popped over to the painter yesterday, he has lots of urgent jobs on and this is a low priority (although I'm itching to get back on the track) so it's been pushed back a bit however primer is on and he's promised it'll be done on Monday. Excited!

    Hoping to find time evenings this week to put the finishing touches on the frame and build a rack
