I really like the paint scheme you went with, kinda reminds me of specialized frames, looks so much better than plain white 8)

Thanks for the comments! The bike has been in use for a few weeks now but I forgot to post pictures of it finished. I'll post some when I have the time.

Brakes: Formula RX
Drivetrain: Sram NX shifter+derailleur, SLX 11-42 cassette, FSA Comet crankset with a Shimano HT2 BB and Blackspire n/w 32t chainwheel
Saddle: WTB Volt
Stem, bar, seatpost: mixed basic stuff I had

Thanks! Unfortunately the finish is not as durable as I had hoped for. Still looks good but has some chips already.
