Here’s Afredo’s smashing coupled club racer/light tourer/travel bike. His design for the paint, and I’m very happy with the final product. It’s a mix of True Temper, Dedacciai and Columbus tubing, and of course the always fabulous S&S couplers. There is a Ritchey Pro Carbon fork, painted to match; and that’s a 6 degree slope to the top tube, a gentle compact geometry that makes for easier packing (no need to remove the cranks).
And here are some shots in progress:
Also, Alfredo is a journalist and photographer, and took these great shots of me working on the frame:
And here are some of the built up bike, with stem, bars and seatpost painted to match:
I also painted a Raleigh, a Bottecchia, and a Rivendell, and made a touring fork for Cindy’s S3 cross bike.
