Race Day Steel road frame available – Size 57.5cm:

Road Frame Available - 57.5cm

I have a Race Day steel road frame available.  It’s rare that I do spec bikes.  If you are interested, please get in touch at erik@alliancebicycles.com

Full details can be found by clicking on the project bike tab. http://www.alliancebicycles.com/projectbike/

I built this frame to use as a display model for my new website.  Professional photos of it will be taken for the gallery.  I’m going to leave the color/logo choice somewhat open.  I’d like to keep the paint inline with my general style.  If you have a specific paint job you’d like to use, please send a mock up to me.

If you would like to add a fork, headset, etc, that works great for the photos.  I can also build it into a complete bike if you like.

This frame is built using the rarely seen Columbus Spirit.  It’s the version that I some what jokingly refer to as Spirit for TIG.  The tubeset is beautifully shaped with multi faceted ovalization.  The shaping is hard to describe, but it’s a very unique and special tubeset.  The ride is smooth due to the thin tube walls, but the large diameters keep the frame from being unresponsive.

The geometry is based around my classic stage race road numbers.  The bb is kept very low for great corning grip and confidence.  The chainstays get pushed out just a bit to balance the shorten effects of dropping the bb down.  The CS length is also matched to the front center length for proper weight distribution.  The headtube is a bit taller for less spacer stack under the stem.

This frame will easily clear 28mm tires, the limiting factor is actually the fork.  Enve forks will clear a 28mm as well, but that’s about it.  There is crank clearance for compact or mid compact cranks.

Regular price for my Race Day Steel frames is $2,150.  Price for this frame is $1,250 including paint

Please allow 4 weeks for paint
