As I mentioned in the previous post, I have a new road frame order placed. I'm anticipating the frames will be here around the end of July into August. The sooner the better I say. In anticipation of the new frames, I'm looking at a new color. All the trends are indicating a light blue is the new hot color for the year and as it happens I had already been thinking about a similar shade of blue as one of the colors.
This new production of road frames will have no surprises. Same geometry. Same tubeset. Same clearance for big, fat road tires. Same long reach brake caliper requirement. The one change I made is the same one I made to the last run of 'cross frames: a reinforced, machined head tube. Just a nice little addition.
Color. Here's the new blue color against the orange frame. I think it will make a great looking road frame color.
For the second color, I'm waffling on more orange or maybe black. What do you think?
