Yikes! I love me a great seat tube cluster, especially when the paint is that sharp. See more of Al’s Signal road at the Signal Flickr. I’d love to shoot this one dirty!

    The stainless chainstay protector is a really nice detail.

    Gorgeous paint on a beautiful steed. My only critique is not matching the paint to the King items (or spec-ing black King hubs/ SottoVoce headset). I doubt it bothers its owner very much, though!

      Have to disagree with you there, I think the similar but different colour of the king components is a nice touch. Provides contrast and looks great against the charcoal colour of the Ultegra.

        I imagine its owner agrees with you. ;]

        I like the black Thomson goods. The cuffs match the collar. There are a few examples out there where all the components are painted to match and it looks a tad over the top. This shows a nice level of restraint IMO.

          Agree, I like the black Thomson stuff as well. In regards to this particular build, I find there’s a good amount of black with the group, cockpit, post, saddle and rims, but then again, to each their own – the beauty of a bespoke build.

      I dunno, the colors look pretty spot-on, one’s just paint and the other is anodizing…
