Michael’s bike is an all Columbus XCr stainless steel winter bike. It is the ideal wet weather road bike which will not rust or corrode with salted winter roads or typical British wet weather. It has space for confidence inspiring 28mm tyres under the full mudguards and 32 or more without them. With disc brakes for predictable stopping no matter the conditions and Di2 shifting ensuring that rusty gear cables remain a thing of the past.
Using our graphic design service, Michael stipulated that he wanted a British Racing Green paint scheme with a contrast of bright pink which was colour matched from the Onyx Racing hubs. Our painter Tom was given some design freedom to come up with this striking colour blocking design with some lines flowing tube to tube, and others skipping a tube or ending on just one. We prepped and polished sections of the stays, top and seat tubes for some skinny bands of exposed stainless steel as well as for the downtube logo and unpainted chainstays.
