Go Steve Racer Go!

Here's a new Titanium Club Racer with a steel IF fork for Steve. Steve's color palette consists of Gloss Black, White, and Hot Pink. This color combination always pops, but we think it looks especially nice with Steve's custom painted logos – White with a Hot Pink fill. Steve also has Hot Pink wrapped crowns on his fork, and his name in black vinyl on the top tube.

A Personalized Frame for Jonathan

As soon as we saw his sketches, we knew this project was going to be something special. Jonathan had a lot of great ideas, and through email/phone conversations we were able to watch them evolve into a very unique frame design.

We pulled the best elements from Jonathan's original concept and laid them out in a digital mockup. Colors and graphics were chosen and the frame became a tribute to Jonathan's beloved greyhound Olive.

The end result – a Titanium Planet X with a 44mm head tube, painted Sprout Green and Vanilla Shake with a matching Moots stem and tapered ENVE cross fork.

Corvid for East Coasters

Recently we had the pleasure of working on a Corvid for East Coasters in Blacksburg, VA. Their customer requested Pale Pink Pearl painted lugs with some reverse masking on the head tube lug. The frame also had a pink "I" on each down tube logo and a pink breast cancer ribbon on the fork, along with white wrapped crowns. Here are some photos of the frame coming together.

TiFLW in Gloss White and Matte Black

The Titanium Factory Lightweight is only offered with the 2-color paint scheme pictured below. We've seen a lot of great color combinations go out of the factory but there's something so nice about the high contrast of white and black.

Full Titanium Builds

Here's a brand new Ti Crown Jewel for Casey. Casey's frame has a shot peen finish with a mix of black and white decals. It features a 44mm head tube and PressFit 30 bottom bracket. We used a tapered carbon fork to compliment his head tube.

Next is a Ti Club Racer with an IF steel fork for Anne. Anne chose a 3/4 paint job with shot peened panels and rear triangle. She paired Midnight Blue Metallic with Omaha Orange and topped it off with Orange on White decals.

SSRs for Studio Velo

Below are two recent stainless steel frames for Studio Velo in Mill Valley, CA. It was great for us to see each customer's personality shine through in their new frame.

Tim's frame has a full polish. It's shown with Midnight Blue Metallic straight panels and our Black on White decals. It also has a PressFit 30 bottom bracket.

Mark's frame has a 3/4 paint job with a polished rear triangle. His Corsa Red and Gloss Black paint scheme was inspired by our Ti Factory Lightweight. Great idea Mark! We love how this one turned out.

Thank you Tim, Mark, and Studio Velo.
