I love bikes from the late 90's and early 00's and this bike was/is my dream bike since I was a teenager.

I had a really bad fall descending at high speed and totaled the bike but the frame survived. To turn a negative into a positive I decided to draw on it.

The build is based around aesthetic and weight. For example, I went with a Chorus groupset because it's all in black and white. I live in a very hilly area so wanted a climbing bike. Also with the bike being an old bike I didn't want to put super modern parts on it and tried to strike a balance. The build has come in at 7.5kg's. Pretty happy with that considering that it's an old school aluminium frame.

I hope you enjoy looking at it!

That looks incredible!

How much time did it take you to draw the frame? I can imagine drawing on round tubes is quite difficult

I hope you are fine too after the crash

The frame took more or less 6 months to draw.

I was drawing everynight after work until 2-3am.. Had lots of problems with smudging so had to clean/redo a lot of parts.

Drawing cubes on a round tube nearly destroyed me!!! I love the Mapei team and kit so really wanted to put cubes on the frame.

I've managed to completely recover from the crash. wiped out on a closed corner at 65kph. Didn't break anything and it could have been a lot worse. So in a weird way I was lucky but still have the fear on fast descents.

Didn't do any racing last year (very hilly here in Galicia) because of that, instead I stuck to gran fondos where you can descend at your own pace.

Thanks for the nice comment, really appreciated :thumbup:

I usually have no plans when I draw. But with the bike I did want some specific things on there.

I wanted cubes on the downtube as a tribute to Mapei, the puzzle pieces on the toptube, the circles on the seat tube and I wanted to create the effect of carbon stays on the seatstays. Also I wanted the eyes above the bottom bracket because the Campagnolo cranks have a white circle that really looks like a mouth!

After that I freestyled it. Was fun to fill in the cubes, circles and puzzle pieces.

Near the end I realised that I hadn't put much writing/words on it so on the chainstay I put only words/lyrics from the music I was listening to while drawing.

Thanks for the nice comment and I'm happy that you enjoyed looking at the bike :D

You're right. This bike is really mine. A lot of things on the bike is very personal to me.

I put the local climbs that I train on, trying to replicate the topography as much as possible. My dog is there, the city where I live, my rider number when I was a messenger, in jokes with friends, things that make me laugh when I look at it, the buddha on the toptube for good luck and I'm also there with my girlfriend :) .

I think if I ever sell this bike it will be very difficult to let go :cry:

Thanks to everyone for the comments.

This bike took 6 long, sometimes painstaking, months to complete so just wanted to say that all your nice comments are very appreciated.
