I have been working on this for a while. 2010 Specialized Nosecone Shiv with modern accouterments. Paint by Hot Tubes. Front Derailleur hole and recess filled and painted, same with rear cable stop. Very clean. Hot Tubes just killed it for me.







Close up of the paint by Hot Tubes. Pictures don't do it justice. Lots of metallic flakes in the gold paint that reflect the sunlight:


Edit: Adding some pictures of the detail of the beautiful transition from matte to gloss on the seat tube


You should finish her off with custom grip tape with gold logo of your choice. Cheap too ! Here is a link and pics of mine as an example.

If your interested , they can do any color and any logo, print you want. I think like $12

So after a few years of renting I have my own house and now have the space to add to my bikes. Always been limited to 2 but now have room to grow.

Winter bike, Scott CR1 Pro. Ultegra Di2, P2M power meter. Bits and pieces then used to fully build the bike. Only recently relegated to winter bike but not a bad winter bike to have.

Tri Bike. Second hand Trek Speed concept 7.5. Got a great deal on this and moved from an Argon 18E118. This is a nicer handling bike and will be on FLO 60's and a FLO disc when I get the 11 speed freehubs sorted. Still a bit of work to get done sorting my position but getting there.

And the newest addition. Cannondale supersix evo. Sram red etap and a dura ace crank. Hasn't even been outside apart for the photo yet. Waiting on some nicer weather. Might be waiting a while.

That is a very sharp paint job. Amazing how current the frame still is too. I hope your race kit matches nicely!

Sitero saddle w flat kit in storage bottle out back.

Gonna remake the Hed decals in green for both wheels too
If only you were fast enough to ride this ;-) (you know who I am? hint: msf) This bike looks freaking awesome, I would black out the HED decal, I agree with the other guy, making them green will take away from the beautiful frame.

The HED is more expensive than the bike, right? Good setup tho.

Yes, I got those last year for the roadie (great deal from competitivecyclist.com, $899) but I made wheels my big purchase for aero benefits and looks. Now, also because of their width and overall ride quality and stability, I can't ride without them. They were my first pair of nice wheels, it really is a joy to ride on them.

had the old aluminum P3 frame sitting around doing nothing, so figured I'd build it up for sprint events. Lots of paint stripping / sanding / polishing later...

Parlee TTir disc.
Size small.
Best ride feel of all the TT/Tri bikes I've built.
The Enves with 25mm tires roll excellently, comfort & speed.




Love the Profile TT bars made for the frame.
Very comfortable contact points with my hands & elbows.
Excellent cable passages.
They should make this available for independent builds.





My only qualm are the disc brakes.
What for?
They didn't have stopping power greater than my rim brakes.
I expected them to be way better.
If it rains...I wouldn't be riding anyway.


But overall...love the TTir!
Parlee...why same name with old model when its a completely new design?

So gorgeous. I love metal bikes.
How long did it take you to do all the stripping and sanding and polishing? Any recommendations?

The BP Stealth rides nicely, albeit it has pure road geometry (73 deg STA) and the back end flaps about a bit when out of the saddle climbing.

It's a cheap way into a cool-looking monocoque bike.

This is mine:

I used aircraft stripper (nasty stuff, use the proper safety equipment) which strips the vast majority of it off (give it another coat or two for the tough spots) Then went back over it with some dental picks to take off any paint still stuck in a crevice.

After that it was a little sanding (600, 1000, finishing pads/steel wool) and then I hit it with Eagle One Never Dull polish. Finally added some wax to help protect it a little.

Getting that nice polished look is a black hole though... you could spend an infinite amount of time sanding/polishing if you're obsessed with that mirror finish. Then the first time you throw some grime / sweat on it it's ruined :D

Funny... we did basically the same thing for a friends 1st gen Miata hood (they are also aluminum)

Sweet! How do you like the aerocoach disc and chainring? I've got one of the chainrings sitting at home but haven't had a chance to throw it on yet.

That Cannondale is classic! Nice job on the build. How does the Headshok feel in the aero bars!?!?
