Man, I still can’t believe David from Death Spray Custom painted bikes for each of the Cannondale team riders in this year’s Tour. What a huge undertaking that must have been, especially when you see the detail he put into just the fork (you). Keep an eye on the Death Spray Blog for more…

Design, paint, assemble… amazing. I love the halftone detail!
