Last week I finished a road bike for Adrienne, a birthday gift from her clearly awesome dad Doug. She opted for Richard Sachs lugs, Columbus S-bend seat stays, and left it to me to decide on the paint. That can be intimidating but she gave me an idea of what she was looking for, and I’m psyched with how it came out. I’m really digging the subtle contrast between not-totally-dissimilar colors.

And here it is with paint. She’s deciding on components, so watch this space for it built up soon.

I also did a repaint on an old 531 Trek for Chris. He had me update some of the cable routing and open up the dropouts for a wider, modern hub. Here’s how it looked when he brought it in:

And here’s the magical transformation…

    root beer and grape juice? Maybe? Very cool looking. The lugs really pop. Love the fork crown.
