mark's 29er - some detail shots.

some curvaceousness highlighted by the hand-poured bronze BDL headbadge......there's a matching fork, too, but i don't want to even unwrap it.
damn. that's nice!
spectrum powderwork's quality must be seen to be believed. the tiny points fade to oblivion.
it's little details like the dropout faces that blow my mind........
another view.......not bad work on the unfiled silver brazing holding the stainless steel dropouts on, either!
once again, very nice!
great curves, i go to allot of effort to match the seat stays to the chain stays when i bend them - not especially easy given that they start as four pieces.

Holy SH*T. Can I say SH*T on Blogger? I'm uber jealous of this paint job. I mean, I know my salmon Coconino kicks major ass because when I ride it everyone like it, but this THIS is like pro jock -- almost as good as Denise's flower job...

Steve,

That is the nicest paint job I've seen on one of your bikes yet. Like and old school schwinn style. I like. Keep it Up!
