Hi all,

Deliver your trendsetters :)

Only currently no images in the final configuration.

This is not an expensive project, good enough for the price performance ratio.

Very cool.
Those alu TCR's are a nice ride.
What's up with the fork change ?

"Not an expensive project" is always a subjective term on WW.

Good observation.

Sake changes to Giant just a newer model. Just a nice straight look to this combination.
Thank you

Looks great! I really like the look of raw aluminum frames. Nice weight, too!

How did you strip paint/polish the frame? If you did the work yourself what tools/materials did you use? Or did you send the frame to a shop?

I'm also considering a similar finish (raw lightly polished) with an Alu frame.

Also, if you have some more pictures of the frame, it would be nice to see them. :beerchug:

Hi there,

Glad your interest.

The frame has been polished and then varnished. Before finishing the frame shone like a mirror. I chose the wrong varnish. After polishing the frame became partially opaque.

Work has been quite a bit. I used paint remover and small roughness paper.

This frame sells.

Sorry so long undiscovered.

Thanks!!!

I do not have a lot of pictures but ...

Amazing! I was planning on doing the same thing, but couldn't find the right size frame. Why did you clear coat it and not just wax it?

Aluminum oxidizes. To protect and maintain more frequent sheen lacquer.
