Sparky came to me with the brief of classic/contemporary and that’s always a great brief to work to. When he first came down to the ‘shop there were a couple of bare metal fillet brazed frames waiting for paint, one being a road frame and he couldn’t resist. So to add to classic/contemporary was fillet brazed road bike. Think we nailed it.
I know Sparky wanted something special so he got an integrated seat post with custom expanding seat post stub to allow some adjustment should he change his seat or such things. Being a fair weather bike his bottom bracket got pretty heavily drilled and I carried this through to other areas such as the seat tube sleeve and modified Columbus Max crown. Yep couldn’t leave it alone, so I filled the window and drilled the tangs to make sure it tied in perfect with the frame.
The other main feature of this bike is the internal cable routing, with the rear brake cable exiting the rear of the seat tube, the rear derailleur cable exiting the bottom of the seat stay and the front derailleur cable coming straight out the back of the bottom bracket shell. Finished with a mix of Campagnolo parts this is one awesome road machine.
