    Wow, the landscape is pretty cool. Who did the painting?

    Default We use a guy ...

    down on the river. His business is called Air Flair. He has been at it for decades. His web site is: http://airflairart.com

    Even though bicycle frames give an artist very little real estate to work with, Fritz seems to be able to work with the little we give him.

    I guess we now know where all the graffiti artists go when the get too old and decide to go legit-they paint bicycle frames!

    What is on the non-drive side crank?

    It appears to be protective shipping wrap/tape so the crank doesn't get scratched during transit home.

    EDS....a shimano tech doc...usually comes taped like that to the NDS arm.

    i think that one covers the installation of the stopper plate sandwiched between the halves of the NDS arm.

    Default Carlos has it right

    In addition, the Doc. discusses torque procedures for the opposing pinch bolts. We leave them on the arms during assembly so that we KNOW the our customers have had a chance to learn the correct way of ding things. In this case, it really is very important.

    Thanks for the explanation. Should have looked closer - it at first appeared to be duct tape!

    You guys may remember that I went to Camp Too Tall in the spring. I got a chance to ride and hang with the illustrious TK, as well as hear all the guys glowing over their Spectrum Tis (notably, TT and Dave). So, I decided to get on board with a Ti Custom. Tom was able to finetune the fit over the course of our rides together relative to the dimensions of my Nagasawa, which is what I was riding that week. I never made it to the fabled barn, but I think the mountains will do. More to come. . .

    Too small. I'll send you an updated geo sheet and you can send me the frame for double-checking when it comes in. You're welcome.

    Thanks for posting pictures of my new rig, Tom. I can report that the bike is as much fun to ride as it is to look at. You lowered my saddle height a decent amount and it really gives things a different feel than I was used to. It handles at speed unlike anything I could have imagined. I took it out on the Shore vomit ride I do sometimes, and it rode like it was driven by ESP on the long stretches of 30+ MPH pacelines. Descending is spot on, and cornering is sharper than I had ever imagined.

    As for the poster noting worrying about scratching the paint...you better believe it. I think about that way too much, but I assume over time I'll lighten up. That said, Fritz says that once the inevitable scratches start to mount up, I can send him the frame, and he will touch it up.

    The landscape was a thematic idea I presented both to Tom and Fritz. Fritz and I went back and forth on implementation, and then he just did it--no preview sketch/draft. Based on his portfolio, I decided it best to give the artist the idea and then get out of the way.

    I know some people will not like it, but I was not interested in a traditional paint job; I wanted more of a piece of art to go with the piece of art that is Tom's bike. I'm very happy with it!

    Default incoming. . .

    on the way: Spectrum Custom Ti Super. Of note is all the intricate paint masking, including the seat tube logo. Geo table is a few posts up.
