it was a rustoleum galaxy blue. If im 100% honest , the paint work isn't great at all.... i messed up the clear and i think the prep work i didn't wasn't spectacular either. Hindsight i would pay someone to do it and bake the frame. I plan to send this frame off to get repainted this summer.

I see, I'm thinking of doing some DIY work on my CAAD as well. did you had to apply a clear coat even after you applied the rustoleum paint?

i did , and i purchased 2 part clear in a can, which i was hoping to be really nice, but i can't make a full evaluation of it for u as i didn't mix it correct when spraying, so the hardener didn't really harden.

with the amount of hours in prep (i probably have 10+ hours before even laying paint)..... and purchasing materials like sandpaper, scuff pads, buffing compound , buffing pads, etc..... the cost for a competent automotive shop to paint the frame is very reasonable.

16.8lbs was the weight prior to paint. I dunno if i gained or saved on the paint, probably it's the same. That's without the barfly, garmin, speedslev, and framepump.
