It’s Great Seeing this Black Magic and Bishop Bikes Finally Built Up

For anyone who attended NAHBS last year, this Bishop frameset will look familiar. It won Best Finish in show and was painted by Rudi at Black Magic Paint. Well, it took almost a year to build this bike up, but it’s complete. Before we jump into that, however, here’s what Rudi has to say about the bike:

“Chris Bishop sent this bike to do whatever we wanted in the summer. My right/dominant arm was paralyzed in a moto wreck shortly after we received the bike. The bike hung in our shop for months until I felt comfortable painting a bike like this. I sent some sketches over before NAHBS and Chris said, “Awesome! Go with your vision.” My vision was gold paint outlines with kandy gold leaf fade over the fill for the logos. The “grain” panels were a three-color kandy fade. The head tube logo was five color wet paint over a solid black base color. ”

See the completed build photos at the Bishop Flickr and the frameset photos at the Black Magic Flickr.

The 2015 Bike and Beer Festival: Moth Attack CX Team Frame with Black Magic Paint

I’m here in Portland, Oregon attending the Bike and Beer festival at HopWorks Urban Brewery. While I’ll be documenting many of the frames, I’ll also be capturing the general vibes. For now, let’s just check out some bikes!

“There are so many different ways to make shit look awesome on a bike…”
– Rudi from Black Magic Paint

When Megan Dean from Moth Attack was approached by a group of ladies from San Francisco, to build team frames for this season’s ‘cross races, she knew it’d be an undertaking. Sure enough, as making batches of anything at this scale, it wasn’t easy but the fruits of her labor paid off, especially after Rudi from Black Magic Paint got ahold of these frames for paint.

There were a lot of unique frames and paint jobs at the Bike and Beer Festival, yet I kept gravitating towards this one in particular. I wonder why? Look out for these bikes at local Bay Area ‘cross races this season.
