Hang On Swoopy

Here's a Titanium Planet X for Donna. The shapes we painted were her own idea – Donna calls them "swoops". The swoops are painted Corsa Red with Freshwater Pearl pinstripes. Her seat tube and fork logo's are also painted Corsa Red and Freshwater Pearl to match.

Like Father, Like Son

We just finished a pair of father and son Steel Crown Jewels for Yatsugatake Bicycle Studio in Japan. Both frames share a similar paint scheme of Matte and Gloss Black with Silver and White details. Each frame features a single script logo in Matte Black on the top side of its down tube. Lastly, the son's frame has a steel IF fork, while the father's frame has a carbon ENVE 2.0 fork.
