I need your opinion. I have a Venge ViAS that is matte black with white S-Works lettering. I have too many black bikes right now and I considering having it custom painted chrome with black S-Works lettering. I will leave the seat post, stem and handlebars black but chrome the frame. I figured I'd reach out to the forum since I am driving my wife nuts about it. What are your thoughts?

I have attached a picture of a Shiv that Censport painted for an athlete a while back. The chrome was the base coat for the Shiv.

Or should I go with this finish? It appears to be a little less shiny.

For me, I like the second one much better.

I'm not sure I would like having to deal with keeping a chrome bike clean.

Thanks. I think the second one would be better too. I also thought about just having it painted white with black lettering. Want to keep it simple and clean looking.

The chrome bike is mine. While it sure does look awesome just all chrome like that, I went a little further with some more details. With that being said, it is very easy to keep clean. But it's not a cheap finish to get done if it's done the right way.






I am also looking to paint my Vias soon in the near future once I get tired of the reflective design and would love to incorporate some chrome into my design. Censport always does steller work. I would either contact Ron from Specialized or highly recommend Censport as well.
