Riding Discipline – Track
This is my signature track frame. I wanted my signature frames to have a powerful presence, bold yet elegant. This track frame features the Hermes head lug design, inspired by the winged sandals worn by Hermes in Greek mythology. The lug is hand cut in stainless steel and silver brazed to oversized Reynolds 853 tubing. The rest of the frame is fillet brazed to give a clean overall look. The dropouts and seatstay bridge are machined in house also in stainless steel th give the frame more visual balance. The finish on the frame is antique copper plate. This is achieved my copper plating the frame and using patinization fluid to give the unique aged look. The frame is then clear coated with hard wearing laquer to fix the colour of the copper and protect the stainless steel from finger marks and scratches.
