What a nice looking bike!
Please can you tell me what size this bike is? Thank you.
And I am really interested in how you get this nice surface on your frame. Did you polish the raw frame or is it maybe only sandblasted? And what kind of clearcoat did you used ....?
Thank you very much.

The frame is a 57cm , and is just right for me at 5'11 ish . I had the frame powdercoated a hammered bronze wich has a texture to it.

I hope you find one! This frame is awesome! and has handled a lot of touring and mountains. Considering trying the titanium version, but this build will stay for a long time.

Pedal Room costs a fair amount to run, so we're experimenting with non-invasive ways to make some revenue to pay for servers and such.
