Carbonated Road Frame

Here are some images of a new steel/carbon road frame for my friend Bryan. It features Reynolds 853 TT/DT, Columbus Zona ST, Paul Taylor carbon seatstays, Columbus s-bend chainstays and Breezer hooded dropouts. The head tube has been externally machined for weight savings and to create real estate for our new stainless steel head badge. Geometry is slightly relaxed for comfort over longer rides - hence the carbon stays and fork for added vibration damping.

Special thanks to Dave @ Vanderkitten for the clean graphics scheme.

Before paint, the frame was bead blasted, primered and wet painted white. Down tube and seat tube panels were masked and then the frame was painted 'Coca Cola Red' (that's where the carbonated name comes from) and finished off with black decals. Everything gets urethane clear coat treatment including the Easton EC90 carbon fork. Frame weight is 3.6lbs as shown - not bad!
