(This is the old Update Log for my old bike, in case earlier replies get a bit confusing. Didn’t want to start a new one.)

Heyyy, Vital! smile

I’ve finally put together my bike, and it’s the best it’s ever been. Ever since I set up my HYDRO-FOAM build about a year ago, I've been wanting to go back to a likewise look. This time, I went with a much crazier cosmetic with some "hydrodipped" looking bits paired with black parts.

Photo

It's a sky blue base coat with other colors painted on top of it. They’re dark blue, blue, and light grey, to be exact. It gives it, I think, a slightly less boring look compared to a straight color that I've always run on my frame and adds some design reminiscent of my old bike. In addition, I’ve painted the hubs with dark blue and navy blue acrylic to somewhat match the frame design.

Photo

It began with a spray-painted sky blue base coat, then I got a small paintbrush and spayed the different paints on it to smear on the base coats of the frame, fork, and bar. For the hubs, it was just carefully brushing the paint on. It took A LOT of time, especially since I slashed three other colors on top of the base coat and painted the hubs separately, but I'm extremely happy with my efforts!

Thanks for havin' a look! :D

Funny thing was, I came up with the name having no clue that Skyway was an actual thing. I just named it because of the blue, haha!

I figured it wasn't an intentional thing to the company, just the color but I can't resist being a smartass.

Thanks man! Luckily, I don't, lol! Nobody near me rides regularly enough with me to criticize, haha.

Brakes are fun, I like to throw them on every now and then.

Looks good, maybe consider raising your seat about an inch and painting the post silver too? I think it would look good.

Really liking all the colors you've done!

Sounds like a plan, but I'm too lazy to paint prep the post after all the other parts, haha! smile

Anyways, I've updated it slightly. Brakes, forks (Since the Kink Stouts bent at the steerer), stem, and the giraffe seat is back and lookin' awesome, IMO. I also threw on some copper valve caps to give it a subtle bling.

Agreed, the black contrasting against the blue really makes the frame stand out!

Thanks, fellas! It's the best it's ever been, I have no plans of changing it thus far at all.

Stem lowers the bars slightly and the whole setup feels more solid with new bits here n' there. Plus, I'm out of paint and paint stripper, haha! smile

A few more close-ups of my park beast.

I’ve been off the bike for quite sometime now because of school and weather, but it’s finally time to start riding again!
