Ice Blue Explosion. I'm still waiting on mine, but I figure it's the holidays, so whatever. Still waiting on a BB lockring tool from my local bike shop anyhow. not like I could slap it together before then.

I actually landed on that same color, but the lugs will be a lighter blue. Kind of a vintage Gerolsteiner team bike if they had existed then. Anyhow, I did ask him to do the lug work and I don't think he's really done that before, so that might also be a part of the hold up on him finishing it. That and it's now a 3 coat process with the two colors and a clear. I expect good results, though.

EDIT: Just got an update from Jacob. He had told me he was trying a new tape that should help the job. He did the fork first to make sure it would all work out alright and he's taping up the frame now. Hence the reason mine is taking longer than a one coat job.
