Tom - with powdercoat

If you want geometry and discussion (plus the usual ugly naked/unfinished pix), click here. Color code for those who are curious is RAL 6018, which the powdercoat guys immediately identified as Kawasaki green. Pretty cool color.



The bike will have King stuff, Enve Stuff, DT stuff, and Thomson stuff, and an XX1 drivetrain. Sick. Hopefully we'll get a picture or two out of Tom when she's built up.

I just figured you left the bike outside overnight and that patina happened spontaneously.
Sorry about the air quality, btw.

Very nice looking frame like I said earlier.
156mm or 168mm q-fractor cranks?

Green is my favorite nice choice!

Perfect! And, its my birthday.

Hopefully, I will be able to ride up some of the climbs on the CT with that crank.

walt: its nice that you geek out and tell the specs a particular frame has; BUT those numbers would be more meaningful if you briefly describe the rider's dimensions too--i.e. height , inseam, etc.

Anon -

I could do that, but there is a lot more that goes into the design than body measurements - each bike has to suit the preferences and style of the rider, not just their body type. So without writing War and Peace every time I posted a frame, it wouldn't mean much. And to be honest, I don't want to spend the time. You can always hire me to do a design for you if you want the nitty gritty details!
