This past week has been one of the coldest since we have been in the new shop. Â Lots of extra clothing and firing up the wood stove has been necessary. Â Â Spring is just around the corner and the orders are rolling in.
This is Nathan’s coupled road bike. Â The frame is a mix of True Temper and Columbus tubing. Â Build kit is a Shimano Ultegra compact group along with a few of Nathan’s favourite components. Â Since this photo was taken the fork has been replaced with an Enve 2.0 road fork. Â The wheels will be replaced with Chris King Cross hubs built to Open Pro rims.
Craig ordered a new cross bike. Â The bike is built around a 200mm long High Sierra custom crank arms. Â The paint is a pearl white powder with contrasting blue decals and fenders.
Heather ordered a small allrounder road bike. Â The bike will accept a 26 inch or 650c wheel. Â It willÂ accommodateÂ a touring tire and fenders if she needs them in the future. Â The paint is a gloss black powder with a blue pearl in the clear coat. Â The blue pops in direct sunlight. Â Unfortunately the lighting wasn’t great when I took the picture.
This titanium touring bike is the second time around for Paul. Â His original bike was delivered last spring and unfortunately stolen shortly after. Â It is exactly the same as the original but this time we were able to take advantage of the new Campagnolo Veloce triple group.
Beniot’s Â touring bike looks sharp! Â The sparkle copper powder is one of the nicer powder colours we have. Â The frame was built with Â S+S couplers, Avid BB7 disc brakes, Â Alfine dynamo hub, and Tubus Racks.
We took a little time around Christmas this year and did some workshop organizing and experimenting Â with liquid paint. Â We plan to offer more colour options and paint schemes shortly.
