    Ube has sadly left San Francisco and closed the Ice cream shop

    I was pretty sad about it…he is an amazing talent

    He has moved on to Atlanta, where he is working in new areas of design

    Maybe he can be persuaded to paint a frame occasionally? I am hoping so

    Your bike looks amazing. I saw it when it first arrived at Ubes, in a matte black color. so I saw the complete transformation.
    He did an amazing job, so many different colors and fades depending on the sunshine

    What is the next bike you are going to get done?

    Let me know when you are next in SF, so we can go biking

    My kestrel got some sweet Deda Bandito bars recently as well

    I am guessing it was your tarmac which I saw recently at Ube’s shop, which had the metallic silver sparkle paint job. I saw it go through all the stages of paint. Such a great paint job, it sparkled with amazing depth out in the sunshine….I really loved the end result

    I am really pleased the Cervelo thread showed you Ube’s work.

    Thanks Fibre-Lyte! I am glad the paint job made you look for longer at the photos

    The all stealth finishing kit will finish it off nicely

    Many thanks to both of you

    I am thinking of building it with blacked out HED H3 (stealth black logos) and all black finishing kit

    I have some Deda Banditos for the handlebars

    Thanks, the kestrel definitely makes a good canvas
    I agree the paint is polarizing, and some may like it and some hate it

    I am a lover of gorgeous rich colors, and so really get a lot of enjoyment out of this color scheme
    I was not so much going for a fast and furious theme. I am a scientist, and these have somewhat the look of brain cells moving over a matrix!

    Anyway I love it, and wanted to share with others

    Un-aero head tube badge on a cyclocross bike? not heard that one before. But I guess this was the year when pros started wearing aero helmets on the Leadville 100

    This Stoemper will be at least 5% faster with Godzilla on the head tube

    Stoemper is a very good (and small) brand out of Oregon….the Stoemper Ronny CX bike is raced by Ben Berden on the pro US and European circuit….so if it can handle the Koppenbergcross, its going to be pretty fun for me to ride!

    Pritchet, my S5 paint was done at Ube’s Ice Cream Shop in San Francisco

    I just put a separate post on it with the finished paint photos
