This is neat...

Jonathan had his frame repainted recently, and had the disc rotor/seatstay bridge masked off (it's stainless). Pretty neat!

I've sort of moved away from doing the bridges that way, because many folks apparently don't like the look, but if that's something you think is groovy, let me know and we can easily do it.

You already have my rotor in hand for something like this!

That would be a neat option for folks that are getting the rotor brake-brace.
Option? What am I saying? Just don't mention it and have that easy detail be a surprise.

For a guy who does not like bling, you are enjoying this WAY to much....

Wow that's cool. Walt, do you think that it's possible to do that on an existing frame without a full repaint or damage to the frame? Looks like it could be done with a couple files and some time.

Josh -

I bet you could polish off the powdercoat if you really, really wanted to - but it would take a while. Emery cloth would probably be the way to go.

My polished seat stay brace has changed my life! I think I saved some weight, too ;-) --Jonathan
