Columbus SL Candy Road

This frame turned out great because of Sam’s vision.  Sam wanted something that would look and ride like a classic 80′s steel road frame.  Tight road geometry, standard sized tubing and Columbus SL was on the menu.  He asked for a Yves Klein blue.  We decided to go with a candy color giving the paint depth and a unique commonly reserved for high end vintage cars and trucks or the odd motorcycle.  Simple white on blue did the trick.  This is one of those instances when builder and customer come together to make something elegant, unexpected and truly unique, a modern take on the traditional Italian road bike.  Fotto a mano Brooklyn, NY

    I knew I wanted a bike that rode like a classic italian stage race frame, but with room for 700X28 tires and a longer top tube than typical for those frames. I talked with a number of builders before settling on Thomas–he understood exactly what I wanted, had solutions for the practical issues and brought his artistic sensibility to the process, the result being a truly custom frame, not something off the shelf with a few measurements adjusted. Thanks man!
