    That looks lovely.

    Can I ask why it was repainted and what it looked like before?

  • I just always found the paintjob ott and have always preferred the understated style approach basically if a frame is designed nicely

    This one was like this to start with. They are from the same mould as the Ribble stealth but use a different carbon fibre apparantly

    Prefer the old paint job....looks more Italian, too many all black colour schemes.

    ...I know mines one of them :lol:

    It definitely looks much better with the new paint job - stunning bike IMHO.

    Now I just need to order that frame from China and jack up the paint job....:)

    I know what you mean and thats why i went for the clearcoat/gloss as matt black is certainly a trend but not all Italian bikes are loud and proud. Some look too garish IMO 8)
