    Nervous in the service

    I just sent a 90% deposit on a custom frame. And I am very nervous,
    even better, I get to stay that way for months.

    Ever see a bike with the Liquid Crystal Burnt Orange color? I was thinking about trying that, it reminds me a bit of a color Schwinn used
    a long time ago.

    I was also thinking of having the bike's name painted on, Randy Noir.

    why 90%?
    This is unusual!
    it's steel
    it's lugs
    let the others get on with the madness

    That is an odd deposit amount- on the bright side though, orange is the fastest color!

    I'm retiring this year, got the money now, prob won't have it later.

    The bike will be lugged, and I was thinking of using a contrasting color or chrome
    on the lugs.

    Do you think black would work? I like what Rivendell does, like their use of cream colored lugs, but
    don't think it would work with such a strong color.

    But I suspect black would break the visual flow. making the frame seem like a collection of tubes instead of a whole.

    Btw, the frame is a lightly modified randonneur design. Randy Noir...

    That name is absolutely awesome!
    Personally, I would go with chrome lugs if the orange is like I'm thinking it is. Do you have a sample picture of the color?
