Downtube Shifters for Rohloff

We made a custom built Randonneur for a  customer from England. As framematerial we worked with original Reynolds 531 SL from the late seventies of the last century. With this  original 11-tube  set we were able to buld the desired frame and fork. Now we do have still 59 of these tubesets packed in the original cardboardbox  in stock. Stefan has made by hand the fillet brazed frame, then we had it  completely chrome plated and then coated in the customer's favorite color (an extraordinary Ferrari blue from the 60s). We finished  the bike with brakes from Compass-Cycles and a Rohloff hub with a down tube shifter  made by us specifically for the customer. The lighting comes from SON in Germany.

A frame in Lamborghini Blue

For a customer we did paint a luggeda  steel frame with fork and metal fenders  in a Lamborghini blue with pearly effect. The effect is seen only in sunlight, then the color glitters beautifully. Before we had the back and front dropouts chrome-plated, then covered and so perfectly protected for a long service life. Whether we enclose the sleeves still white we have to decide together with the customer.

 

 

professional images

Here you can see once again the huge difference from the layman to the professional. One of the bikes we showed at the bespoked (show @bespokeduk # bespoked2018) was photographed there by a professional (Ben Broomfield, @photoben) Here are the pictures taken by him of one of our Titanframe everyday bikes. In the penultimate news entry you can see the shot made by me. What a difference, the bike is clearly better represented by his pictures.
