Subject: [CR]Painting Lug Edges--Example in Picture

I've been reading Jamie Swan's and Doug Fattic's emails about whether the lug should be painted the color of the lug or the color of the tube. Dale updated the CR Website framebuilders today with my Michael Celmins bike that I got from Tom Sanders. I have to credit Tom with the pics. Interestingly, I believe that the Celmins is painted "Doug's way" with the edges of the lugs being the color of the adjacent tube. I find the fork crown pleasing to the eye in this case. I'm sure there are other uses that I would equally be pleased the other way. Here is the link to the Celmins so you can see with your own eyes one painted "Doug's way". Lou Deeter, Orlando FL
