Too many of the new bikes are dirt bag ugly. They were either designed by marketing and think we all want to ride nascar bikes or by non-artists with no conception of color.
Is there a maaco, or similar type of speciality group that can paint CF bikes so they look super? I know Trek has the Project One where you can select color schemes for new CF bikes for $0 to $500 extra. Heck, for $500, someone should have the skillsets to change a dirt bag bike into a piece of art.
