Finally got my 3rd Wave frame warrantied. Sadly they only had Raw & Toothpaste Green for colors, so I opted for raw and had a local auto body shop powder coat it for me. They did a really nice job too! Also stepped up from a 20.5" TT to a 20.75" TT. I've only ridden it about an hour so far, but it feels pretty good. I might update this with better pics when I get the chance if I remember.

Bold = new since last bike check, lots of new stuff since then.

Cranks: Odyssey Thunderbolt 175mm

My name is GMGuinn and I support this project. /my political sounding endorsement...

Color-wise, I have a similar scheme. Black with gold accents has always been one of my favorites.

For my next build (not anytime soon, frankly), I have a specific color scheme in mind, so I'm exploring custom powdercoating and painting.

I'm digging the look of all those white parts... Looks solid!

(BTW, how do the rims have so much cosmetic damage?)

Ride hard or Ride home.

Thank you sir, I always loved black & gold too.

Definitely go with powder coating, it'll last much longer & be more durable!

It was $70 altogether. $45 for the powder coating they said, plus $25 for sandblasting the clear coat off & labor costs too I guess. I expected it was gonna be at least $100, I was surprised

Thanks! You're one of the first people to actually like the white with it haha can't see myself getting rid of the white.

And I have no idea, probably cause they're spray painted and not powder coated. I guess riding street kicks up rocks and shit and overtime it just wears them down. I really wanna redo them sometime
