    That purple looks really close to the color of my Bridgestone XO-1. A good match is Testors Boyd 52704 "Grape Pearl".

    A happy outcome today... after visiting the hobby shop to search for Grape Pearl paint (no luck) I switched gears to outfitting the Bianchi with some accessories...
    Some Ergon grips, a Mirrycle mirror which I love on my ebike, a new folding lock, new pedals (flats one side, clips the other), front & rear lights and a new saddle to try out.
    Once I got all that in place at home, I decided to give the whole frame a wipe-down, and that's when I discovered the scar on the fork was actually "on" the fork, not gouging through the paint, and it eventually all came off!
    Next up, a rear rack, and perhaps some fenders if there's clearance for them...

    Though you don't need it at the moment, clear fingernail polish is a good alternative when you can't find the color or temporarily until you do. Keeps it from corroding at least. I always keep clear and black fingernail polish in the bike tool box.

    Not really a purchase here... family gifted me a Spurcycle Bell for my 2nd bike... Guess I gotta get back to riding now?

    Loading up on winter gear with Christmas presents and gift cards
    - Thermal jersey
    - Merino wool base layers
    - Pearl Izumi AmFib tights
    - Ski goggles

    Had to return some lobster gloves that didn't fit
    Next purchase is going to be new shoes/boots once I find something good for commuting and fit my wide feet

    So, in August of 2018, I broke my full suspension MTB frame. It was under warranty, but because of some manufacturing issues, it never got replaced. So, almost a year and a half later, HAPPY NEW BIKE DAY! 2020 Norco Optic. Unfortunately, it has been raining and the trails are slop, so it might be a bit before I actually get a chance to ride it.

    (Sorry for the odd photo on the back of my car in the dark... The other photos are upside down and I will not subject you to contorting your neck to oogle my beautiful new bike!)

    Was it that long ago that you, Tonya, Jo, and I were practicing getting over logs at the bowl? Looks like we can go play on some more obstacles, but I'd highly recommend a bash guard (always one of my first purchases with my mountain bikes)

    Hahaha! Yes, it has been a while. I remember that, since it was the day my brake pads fell out somewhere along the trail. Oops!

    And yes, as soon as it stops raining (or we get a hard freeze), I am planning to head up to the 'Shed and play on some rocks.
