Not finished, I found bar tape the same colour as the saddle, so that will be changed.

The entire frame is in fact matte finished, the fork will stay unpainted as Spectrum told me they would not be able to match the Matte finish of the frame on a CF fork.cdhbrad said:Great looking bike. Thanks for the closeups of the fork/ headtube. I am planning to have Carl build a frame for me later this year and I want to use the same fork. I wondered how the integrated style fork would look with a non-integrated headset and it looks great.
Did you use a matte clearcoat? I like the finish, it just doesn't have the glossy look that most do.
For red tape, RavX makes a simulated stictched leather tape in Red that looks good and is very durable. Our LBS sells a lot of it and I have it on all my bikes.
I can't believe I am going to say this (gulp) but I think the fork looks great with the frame as is. Reallytoomanybikes said:The entire frame is in fact matte finished, the fork will stay unpainted as Spectrum told me they would not be able to match the Matte finish of the frame on a CF fork.
My frame and I had nothing to with paint design.T-shirt said:That's your frame?!!
I was lucky enough to see it up close at NAHBS in Indianapolis. The finish and details are really nice, and that's a great theme you designed.
The Spectrum gloss powder coat was amazing too; there was no way that I could distinguish it from paint.
