Post 'em!

I'll start with a recent favorite bike of mine (from a user here actually, user 'flea')

(I'm looking for inspiration, as I'm about to replace a few parts and not sure what colors to get them in, and will likely be refinishing my frame around that)

I'm almost tempted to try this style, already have the tape and most of my colors but hesitant to pull the trigger..

Right now I'm in love with this 20.5" project/backup bike, i've moved all my best hardware to it and it's tuned and rides great, but the frame is just a shitty flat-black basecoat I put on it, it's not a finished coat in any sense. I always do low-sheen black but wanted to try something different this time, and to separate from my other bike (my united looks identical to this bike..))

Luke Parkers bike from Colony looks amazing . Fat , motorcycle tired , slimmer brown seat , hourglass HT with the low profile graphics and the over all build just is something I really like .

bmx-ism, i've always hated the look of using spacers under stem when you've got a front load, it just doesn't flow so great to me...ditch the spacers and get topload and/or taller bars. Looks more natural.. His teal green fiend was like that, too, was also sick as this one is!

I'm just really into the geo mostly, the bike looks just like any other blacked out bike.

I prefer the look of front loads over top loads personally. You say it doesn't 'flow', that's probably why I like it.

adfkje, the hatch-markings are done with window screen, it will be WAYYYYYY easier instead of taping.

Dave Lawrence, can you explain more have you tried this? Kokxxy is right, that is the product I have on-hand to do this with, in fact I used it one before I ever heard of this, I put it on a fixie's (raw steel) sprocket and sprayed black; the lines were not nearly as sharp as I'd hoped they'd be, and I'd given-up on using that in paint-work since until seeing this 'betley' style of it on bmx frames. DaveLawrence you are probably very very right though, that window-screen would make a far sharper line (although you'd have to tape it in-place, so you could really only do 1 side of the bike at a time I think)

I've googled a lot on that style of painting, seen some dope ones and seen some that I'd simply black-over if they were mine! Have got a ton of ideas though, am strongly considering the 'galaxy' colors (dark blues/purples, black, white bursts) but also a navy/gold/white approach, think I need to do this on cardboard before approaching my bike!

that's my general feeling, but lately with my running 2 bikes at once (trying to dial-in perfect setup), I am constantly confusing them because they are both matte black and look identical! So really gotta do *something* to make one visually different haha
