Any woman who creates her own "Raw Power" frameset is a keeper. Kick. Ass.

With regard to frame prep all I did was give the frame a clean, feathered out the numerous scratches with some fine grade sandpaper & then prayed with a can of satin spray paint. I'm using Posca pens and will need to give it a good clear coat after it's finished.


Oh my. Stunning.

I was contemplating doing this sort of thing to a Brompton folding bike for summer commuting and dashing to the pub. Similar to the London Limited edition... but not so ridiculous

White extremities and a black main frame. The new Jubilee Brompton comes with new white mudguards too. Don't know if I can wait 8 weeks for a custom one to arrive though.

And if I ever meet an aardvark, I'm going to step on its damn protruding nasal implement until it couldn't suck up an insect if its life depended on it.

Thanks guys, after some test rides at home in the Amsterdam area for the final adjustments, we've taken my Bianchi and Corine's Vetta to Burgundy for two weeks of riding in the Nièvre and Morvan...
