Here are a few photos of a blue Velo-Orange Randonneur frame. As always, click on them to see the full size shot.
Notice the new fork tangs and the new seat stays caps. I really like the wraparound look, very French.
This frame will have sidepull brakes so there is a different brake bridge. The brake bridge reinforcements, however, will be used on all the frames.
I still don't think we have the shade of blue quite right. One shade lighter might look better. The photos don't exactly capture the color which has just a hint of green in it. This paint is also thicker than the silver gray and I love the non-metallic look. By the way, we now offer white decals outlined in dark brown as a no-cost option.
I'll take some photos of it built up in a week or so.
