  • drummond international grey

  • one of the lads on the irish social group was kinda enough to do this


    but he also reckons this would be better

    its steel tubed, lugged bridgestone RB-1

  • Go with the first one. maybe with a white patch on the seat tube.

  • Can I haz Bridgestone RB-1 please?

  • I quite like this

  • I quite like this

    damn i quite like that. cheers mate. good contribution

  • this was the inspiration

  • this was the inspiration

    i just messed my pants!

  • +1 Yeah that's gorgeous.

  • I want my next bike to be blue and white.. What is this frame? What was the bike above? These are both lovely.

  • go for bloodpoo brown

  • Sorry just read this properly - what was the inspiration picture? Realised what the other pic was.

  • its a frame i saw in BLB the other day

  • i dont really like pure white, it looks too plasticy to me. i much prefer an off white cream.

    im getting my next frame in pale gay.

  • mississippi corpse green.

  • Thanks Bigfoot, might have to head east to have a look over the weekend.

  • @fox
    that's one of BLB's own brand frames. The 'classic' has a more relaxed geometry than their original track frames. You can see them built up in their website gallery.

    @ stevie, IMHO pure white and navy is very harsh, vintage colours for vintage frames.. my 531c track bike is RAL 9001 (pale gay using tynan's colour chart), ali components, honey leather saddle and bar tape..I even get compliments from taxi drivers.. it wasn't a standard colour at condor paint shop so more expensive, but unique..

    @Tynan you crack me up.. send me a swatchcard please..
