I bought this bike as a "frame and fork" only and it was in desperate need of a repaint. Before I even saw it in person it was sent to Cyclart (still in Vista, CA, at the time) for a repaint. I described the color I wanted - this is officially "painter's choice" - and they did an incredible job. I opted to not have down tube decals applied as anyone that knows Ritchey frames will recognize it without needing to be told.
For the build I wanted to do something different than a Campy build, so I opted for a combination of high-end US components, top-of-the-line Zeus components, and a few other oddball (but nice) components. I'm happy with how it turned out.
Is there a URL where people can read or see more about your bike?
