Hey Guys!

Just wanted to share with you some pictures of my freshly painted Focus Jam2. A lot of you will probably think i am crazy but i could not stand the brown/neon yellow color on my bike. In my personal opinion a lot of mountainbike products are over branded! It's like the 90's all over again. Everything has to have the brand printed or painted on it in a huge font. Let the design speak for itself and not the logo's.

Wonder what you guys think!

Nice effort, the bike looks super clean! Did you do the work yourself?

Thanks! Yeah i did it myself. Painted it with a quality spray gun and 2k paint so the finish should be pretty durable. It was a lot of work getting al the sanding perfect because of the decals.

Wouldn't pick that colour myself but as long as it makes you happy.. I've just bought a Jam2 and gonna send it back as I'm unsure of the colour. If im paying 4k plus for a bike then I wanna be totally happy with it.

I agree but sometimes the bike is so good that you are willing to compromise. But after a while it got to me and i decided to paint it. The color is different i will give you that but in real life it's pretty cool. Less yellow

I've got the same bike, I'm still not 100% convinced on the brown but I actually like the yellow bits, I have added yellow pedals as well :giggle:

Haha. Oh man i could not stand the yellow bits. And no way to remove them without a complete paint job.

But when you first got the bike did you like the colour? I'm of the type if I don't like the look then I'm not buying no matter how good the specs are.

Nope never liked it but the deal was so good that i could not let it pass because of the colourscheme. Now after some hard work the bike is how i want it. And they say that it's less likely to get stolen like this.... No logo, branding, custom color and so on. Do hope thats true!

Love the new colour, less keen on the ‘accessories’ on the older version.

I'm not sure on the blue mudguard myself actually, only just put it on but think I prefer the black one I had on before... :unsure:

Love the bike but there is just so much going on. Logo's, colors, decals. Specialized kind of know how to tone this down a little bit by not going crazy with al the branding. I honestly don't understand why every MTB product has to have huge branding on it. I feel like a idiot advertising for companys.

I see what you mean but I like a bit of colour on mine, although the blue mudguard has now gone and the old black one is back on :)
