|There is a very small chip in the paint on the seat tube in this picture, however, |
most of the major ones seem to be on the alternate side of the Hillborne.
I thought that I knew the color that I wanted to paint the bike - I've had it picked out in my mind for over a year now - but as I think about it more and look at color options, I can see things going in two ways. First option: keep things more muted, classic, and understated (this was the original idea), or (second option) perhaps it is better to try out something bright? In some sense, I find that I'm more visible because of the orange color (even when there isn't as much light out), so perhaps going brighter makes more sense?
|RAL 4009 - A lavender/gray-ish color to keep it looking classic|
|RAL 1016 - Maybe bright yellow is the way to go?|
