i am sure that if you saw the frame up close before the paint job you would have understood the decision to paint. you can see some of the spidery marks underneath the paint on the headtube shot on page 1 of the thread, it would have needed doing at somepoint.
i went for white because i wanted a clean look and also because where i was originally going to use the spinergy wheels the yellow spokes had to match in with it and that meant a limited choice of colours, white, gun metal, silver etc, there are not many colours that the yellow spokes would have worked with and i felt that white was the best option.
being honest though i really don't like red! never have! and the combination of red and yellow was hurting my eyes!
i decided to use the fatlanta decals for no other reason than i thought they looked cool! but that forced a change of wheel set aswel.
i'm going to put on a couple more blue and red ano bits here and there, noting big, just bolts etc.
overall i am really pleased with the build
You have enemies? Good. That means you've stood up for something in your life.
