Wow, that's skilled hand work.

And very nice welds. Almost a shame to cover them up with paint.

Hello Eric ,

Maybe you are right but the paint will also be eye candy.

Aimar paint all his Frames Black, Then cover it with a Candy coloured clearcoat.

In my Case Deep purple, similar to the ck headset.

Here is a pic a of amaro Loren with candy Blue clearcoatImage

@ calnago

Only for you by aimar

Hi Marco

I do all the process by hand, including mitering. To me this is quite an important question as it certainly makes things more "human" and although it certainly takes much more time and effort to do it properly, to me makes a difference to value the human skills, which should not be considered less accurate than any machine, it just take more time and effort. Mitering by hand, specially the rear stays, is a hard work and needs to be done carefully, for example it took me about 3 hours this morning to cut both chainstays, whilst if using cutting machines would have been done in about 15 minutes, but we're not thinking on mass production or similar questions, but putting value on how accurate humans we can be, and we should raise the value of the human machine.
Also, there's the other side of the question, which is being as power-assisted as possible, so the only plugged machine I have and electricity dependent is the TIG machine, but here there's no other alternative if you want to weld (brazing is a different technique with different results and mechanical properties). I do also have a hand drill for making vent holes and a grinder for the tungsten sharpening, but none of both are used for the actual building process (cut/file/miter/etc)

Here you can see what's my full workshop tooling:

@ calnago One More Time

Hi Marco

Just in case, here you can see a full hand downtube miter process I uploaded some time ago on flickr, I try to make as many pictures as possible of the process but they also take quite a long time, so not always as big collages as this one ;)

Will be a nice bike MARLON,

I'm a big fan of his work, I keep a close eye on his VSalon feed. He is a great artist, bike builder and appears to be a class act and interesting man

I hope the Rapha thing will help him develop greatly, it's good to see a spanish thing going well in 2014
