Bas, that would look very nice. I think I have seen such before, it looked ace.

T-Max I had, was not only gloss black, but also had very fine glitter dust. Highly recommendable paint was that ...and original!

Good for you and impressive product support from Serotta.

I think I like the idea of gloss black with fine glitter.

Enjoy!!

Great to hear that it got warranty!! I followed your story from beginning :)

Black metallic is such a nice color, the glitter gives the color sort of a "deepness", a really precious look! I'd go for it! :)

By the way, this is my first built of my new T-Max, the one from Sithlord ;)
Love it! Atm it is in my living room where i can always watch it ;)

Of course i'll post it in the "Reader's Bikes" section when it is done the way i plan it.

Just to show again what a excellent choice it would be ;)

My mate's Fiquay max or was black gloss with a silver "fleck" bitd.
the max tubeset seems to really suit black paint

Go with the slate color with white decals. Might as well match the stem and forks for a sleek look.

Have you asked if disc mounts might be possible?? I would be very tempted... Original paintjob gets my vote. 8)
