I love white bikes, this one being my third. A new Paul Taylor, delivered to me in late July, outfitted with mostly Ultegra 6700 components, using a CarbonLord compact crank and the new HED Bastogne C2 wheels. Over 650 miles on it in just 6 weeks and I'm still excited to ride it. Fast, comfortable with exquisite handling and my other bikes are just sitting, wondering where I went.

Paul's a great builder and painter, funny Aussie expat and has the cutest baby daughter that I've ever seen. Glad I was able to get together with him.

It looks great......I've become a huge fan of white bikes.....
+1 and the odd thing is that I have always thought of it as a bad choice for cars because of all the dirt it shows...but there's something pristine about a shiny white frame...

Is that a "weathered" Brooks saddle proudly sitting on your new custom steed? Enjoy and congrats! I am thinking of going custom steel soon.

Ha. Should I post a cell-phone pic next time?
Nah.

If not for the tire logo I'd think it was a B&W shot. Very cool how that turned out.

I remember the original thread with this pic BTW.
