It’s very My Little Brony with that paint job but Marino makes a good looking frame.

XTR brake levers on a Hope caliper, is that even going to work? Hope uses DOT fluid, Shimano not.

And uh, I swear I never saw that Marino before picking the colors for my patientZERO.

It doesn't look like the Marino has metallic colors, like my patientZERO does. But still similar, yes Smile

Good spot, surely that couldn't work?

Haha that's a good one. Yeah it's not as stunning as the patientZero, but I think the paint quality is pretty good for what I paid.

I wanted something colorful against the grey dullness of my FS. It gets a lot of comments when I'm out.

As far as I know Hope makes some road and/or gravel type upgrade brake calipers that are compatible with Shimano i.e. mineral oil.

Looks like an RX4 to me.

I was also thinking about those, but these are only flat mount as far as I know...fascinating!

They do a Shimano (mineral oil) and Sram (DOT) caliper.
