Tomm Willians you can put that Wilier in any thread you want, that’s a sweet bike.

Not Orange but it’s a Velo Orange, so that counts right? Plus orange tape and logo!

This prompted me to reference RAL colors-
turns out like other systems RAL has a reference swatch book- have to order one of those.

note metallics are very producer dependent and the system creator advises to get samples from the vendor

All done, on its way back home now.
I got this picture from Jack at Franklin Frame of my newly painted Colnago and matching pump. It is somewhere in middle earth right now according to Bike Flights . It should be home soon, I can hardly wait! No pumpkins were harmed during the painting process.

You aren’t working hard enough on the orange bits





Even the top cap





The cap is a nod to my career and most of the parts coming from my commuting bike which really was orange (not too vintage, however)
