Note: Imperfects are frames that arrived from the factory with minor imperfections that we sell at a discount. These imperfections don't impact the performance, durability or warranty on the frame. In most cases. there is a pinprick indentation (about .5mm deep) in the top tube, seat tube or down tube that happened during the fabrication process and/or a minor paint issue (swirling, fading, thickening). These issues would be hard to find if not pointed out (and very difficult to photograph so we don't have pics), but are marked as 'Imperfects'.
Our most popular frameset features Reynolds 725 steel and seamless TIG weld.
Framesets will ship within a week of ordering.
Our current colors are Cosmic Red, Rhodium Blue, Bone White and Alpine Gray. See info here.
Frames also have been updated with new chainstay design for better clearance with narrow cranksets and provide more stiffness in the rear triangle.
The frame is hand-built using seamless heat treated, double butted oversized Reynolds 725 chromoly steel main tubes with forged track style rear drops. There are braze ons for two bottle cages, on the down tube and seat tube.
The fork is brazed tapered chromoly steel with investment cast crown, 1 1/8" steerer and forged fork ends. It includes a Tange Seiki Technoglide headset with cartridge type bearings.
Chainstay are indented on the inside to provide optimal tire clearance and indented on the outside of the drive side to provide better crankarm/chainring clearance.
