SPECS, DETAILS & PROCESS...
This plan required a lot of research, patience and relationships.
The quest of components and their acquisition took place on a dozen months and at the time when project started I had already collected main components for a very modest price.
 
However by worries of coherence and the compatibility of components it will have been necessary to lead a true hunt to treasures to find certain rare pearls.
 
In term of realization: seam of leather, with the polishing of the parts via the design of the headbadge, all was handmade by myself. Only gray coated painting on the frame set and wheels mounting were entrusted to professionals.
 
 
This bike born thanks to the momentum from the French fixed gear community and their help on www.pignonfixe.com
