    Yes, it is aluminum. Yes, it has been repainted. One of my good friends does auto body/paint for a living so as I soon as I got the frame, he was stripping it. The inside of the CF fork was left bare. It's called Toyota "Super White."

    Couple more...

    Leaving the inside of the fork as is makes the bike.

    51cm Scattante XRL Comp. Waited for a sale and used some Performance points. The frame was 151 shipped to my door. Dropped the frame off right away to my buddy's shop and let the madness begin.

    Yea, just a Scattante XRL Comp. I am sure the snobs will love that. I don't think I could have done better for 151 shipped. If I were to wreck it in a crit, it would be replaced very easily.

    I haven't weighed it. I gotta get a a scale asap, but to be honest I've never been a weight weenie.

    Laguna Seca Blue from the BMW M3? Mmmmm tasty. I see right where you are going with that one.

    I thought about Honda/Acura Championship White which is an off white, but my other white components wouldn't match it.

    That's one reason why I went with auto paint vs powdercoat. I originally was gonna have the frame coated and then let my buddy match the white to the fork, but I figured it would be easier for him to just take care of the entire thing.

    5'4" or so. Longer in the torso than I am in the legs.

    My track bike is a 49cm Fuji Track Pro.

    Here are some pics of the prep process (from my iPhone so not that great, sorry).









    All primered up!


    Inner fork detail. We couldn't decide on what part of the fork to leave exposed, so he said, "Just go home, I'll think of something." I think it turned out pretty well


    I'm gonna be dropping my Fuji Track Pro off soon now. He said "Don't give me any input, just let me go wild on it. This bike was a fun change of pace from cars." I am curious to see what he's gonna do.

    I was just now looking at your bike and thought Honda Championship White would be sweet, but you're right, it wouldn't match any other white-colored components out there.

    If I get a frame repainted, maybe I should use Nighthawk Black Pearl like my EP3 Civic.

    You can tell who's into cars by all of the paint names being thrown around, lol.

    My AP1 S2000 is Sebring Silver. Thought about that too.

    I just like white bikes, a lot.

    Heads up for anyone interested in the frame.

    It is NOT an integrated headset, but rather internal. Performance has the wrong info up on their site (not surprised).

    Information regarding front derailleur (31.8), seat post clamp (31.8), and seat post diameter (27.2) are all correct.

    My frame did not come with the bottom bracket shell cable guide, so I ordered a universal fit Shimano piece, but the dude at the shop had one that fit better.

    Upgraded my road rig. Leather handle bar wrap, leather saddle bag, and Brooks B-17 Champion saddle. They add a tad more weight, but the returns in comfort and traditional old school good looks is worth it.

    Thx!

    Campagnolo Hyperon Ultra carbon rims, asymmetric rear profile, blade spokes, ceramic bearings in the hubs (also Campy).

    That's all the pics I have right now, but I'll post some more after I finish changing the stem and bars. The reach is a tad to long for me and I prefer slightly wider bars.
