Derek's Orange Velo Orange

Our first orange frame is going to Derek. He requested Johnny's signature Italian style concave style seat caps. Unlike most of our frames, this one is intended as a very fast all-arounder and lacks some of our usual braze-ons. The color is a bit more like a burnt orange than what shows on my monitor. More photos here. Check out those rear dropouts; shweeeet!

Sarah's black frame is next.

The white lettering really looks good against the orange. I would really like to see this built up.

Congrats, Derek!

Gorgeous seat lug cluster. I'm a bit surprised the painter didn't mask the drop out faces.

Gotta say, orange coloured bikes always look good. Too bad Riv- forgot that with their production frames, and Surl_ is orange colourblind. Keep the orange alive!

I came of age, bicycle wise, during reign of Eddy Merckx. I like Molteni orange with blue trim.

That looks horrible against red brick wall. Photograph it against a different background and it'll look stunning.

Too bad this wasn't around when I bought my Riv R. I'd have got this one instead.

Brian -
I sold my orange Riv R. to get this - go for it! ;)

I'll forward pix to Chris when I receive the frame and build it up - hopefully he can post them.
