I had a request to post more photos of the paint on the U. Scanini.
To be honest, I really dislike the paint on this frame, it’s too dimensional and I think you lose the beauty of the crimped tubing. However, the paint is in remarkably good condition and quite durable, unlike my NOS Quintana Roo. I actually want to have it repainted Mercedes W123 beige and build it up with a full carbon group, but that’s a fantasy more than anything.
The lugs, brake bridge and dropouts are all Silva. The dropouts are beefier than most track ends and I really love the profile on the SLX seat stays. It’s a really cool frame and I can’t wait to build it up.
