Cyclocross Racer

August 7th, 2008 Hugh

Just in time for the upcoming cyclocross season, this versatile, custom ‘cross bike is for a very small rider. The frame is True Temper S3 ultra-light steel with a carbon fiber rear end. The frame is matched to an AlphaQ CX20 all carbon ‘cross fork and is painted deep candy red – a red clear-coat over a metallic gold base layer. The drivetrain is an XT/105 mix with versatile gearing combining a compact crank with a MTB cassette. Paul’s canti’s provide the stopping power, and Shimano’s ST-R600 reach adjustable shift levers are matched to a Salsa Short and Shallow bar for a set-up friendly to small hands. A Fizik Vitesse saddle, carbon seatpost and the FSA Orbit CX headset finish off the package.

Custom Titanium Road Bike

Here are some shots of another custom titanium road bicycle with a carbon rear end and custom wet paint. The colour is a really cool ‘glam’ kermit green, with very fine metal flake. The photos do not do it justice. The bike is built up with the Shimano Ultegra SL group, matching SL wheels, a Selle Italia Lady GelFlow saddle, and an anatomical, women-specific TTT-EVA handlebar.

Painted Ti and Campy Chorus

May 16th, 2008 Hugh

This is the third in a string of beautiful custom road bikes this week. This bike is a custom titanium frame with shaped, butted tubes and a carbon fiber rear triangle. The front triangle is painted a rich candy orange. The True North logo on the downtube is masked in the paint, revealing the underlying titanium. The bike is build up with Campagnolo Chorus parts and Campy Eurus wheels.

Columbus Spirit and Ultegra SL

May 15th, 2008 Hugh

This custom road bicycle has a Columbus Spirit steel frame and an Ultegra SL build. The crank in the pictures is a loaner as the Ultegra cranks are back ordered. The gray SL crank will match the paint job a lot better! The paint is a metallic maroon fading to a metallic charcoal that has been matched to the Ultegra SL ice gray.
