Deb’s disc cross bike

September 9th, 2012

We have done paint work for Deb in the past so we were happy to have her back to build her a new cyclocross bike. She wanted to go the disc route for her cross bike and I was happy to oblige. To keep the weight down, we chose the Whisky 1 1/8″ carbon disc fork. The stresses put on a frameset with disc brakes are different from that of rim brakes so dropouts and fork legs need to be reinforced. The blue and cream paint scheme with red and yellow details is so gorgeous I almost don’t want to see it get dirty. Almost.

A little bit ago, David sent us a pair of Bruce Gordons to get repainted. It was our pleasure as Bruce is still one of the greatest framebuilders out there. Gorgeous thinned lugs got a nice thin coating of clear to preserve the sharpness of the shorelines.
