It’s no secret I love my SCOTT FOIL. And I was really, really excited last year when I was given the opportunity to get my hands on the new model. Oh yeah! There was just one teeny little problem: the only XL left was… bright, lush, in-your-face, grassy green…
I mean, seriously guys? Green*?? I thought the only brand who can get away (somehow) with dodgy colour options begins with Cannon– and ends in –dale…
So anyway, the frameset sat in my bedroom for weeks, which dragged into months. I had to wear sunglasses to look at it so I didn’t get eyesore… But when my beloved old SCOTT FOIL started showing signs of fatigue just before the Haute Route Alps, I bit the bullet. I built it up, and hit the road. Up, down, hammering along the flats: it’s a seriously awesome bike… And from the saddle the colour didn’t seem so bad. Almost.
How to custom paint a SCOTT FOIL?
I could sand it down. I could spray it myself. But a world-class bike deserves some world-class bling… That’s it! I grabbed my phone and shot a quick message off to my mate Peto “Hey man, where did you get that amazing paint done?”
Nah, not really: I asked Google like everyone else. Lumar Colors in Padova, Italy are THE reference in bike painting in Europe, communication with Luca was super cool, and my Foil went from tough-on-the-eyes to World-Champ-awesome in a few short days.
