That is sublime 8)

Amazing bike and lots of cool history too,

Would you be able to list the components etc as there are some parts there I have never seen before.

Cheers

I see the fern leaves every once in a while, but the overall effect still looks bamboo-ish to me. It is a more Fir shade of green though, less bright than the Mountain Goat Bamboo.

Either way, it's a darn pretty paint job. You could call it Romaine Lettuce and it still won't change the fact that the thing is beautiful. 8)

Thanks. Not a PA native myself, I was living in New York when I ordered the bike from Steve. When we got around to talking about paint, I wanted some sort of camo. Steve immediately suggested this scheme, it's called Tamoflage, the foliage used in the mask came from Mt.Tam. The paint was done by Cycledelix ( Carolyn Gravenites, Steve "Gravy" Gravenites sister) I okayed it sight unseen based on Steve's enthusiastic description.
