Just Add Vanilla

Vanilla Shake looks great with just about every other stock paint color we offer. Here's a Titanium Crown Jewel and ENVE 2.0 fork in Vanilla shake and Midnight Blue Metallic (Gloss Clear over everything). This frame also features a brushed titanium drive-side chain stay.

Here's a Steel Factory Lightweight with an ENVE 2.0 fork in Vanilla Shake (Matte Clear) and Omaha Orange (Gloss Clear). We affectionately called this one "the creamsicle" as it made it's way through the shop.

Hand-Me-Down Upgrade

In 2011 UrbanVelo made a post about a tiny steel Crown Jewel we made for the owners' daughter. She has since outgrown her bicycle so we've given it a brand new look for her 7 year old brother. The new paint job features ghost flames and the sword from MineCraft on its head tube.
