Either way it's a lovely paint job, but one that had enough quirks that I've never worried about treating the bike as a rider.

Here are some pics of the frame I built. It's a 650b rando bike that's roughly the same geo as the masi, has a little bit shorter top tube and a little bit longer rake. Like it a lot so far!

Well I'm just going to come right out and say that you've done a great job on the new frame and with the canti/rando/vibe thing going on it is screaming at me for the vintage Stronlight/Huret/ etc. program in bare metal.
