I had to swing by Icarus Frames ( @IcarusFrames ) today to pick up a few things and while I was there, I got to see some of his latest handywork. This 1×10 commuter cross frame is heading up to Boston and while the customer didn’t want anything too fancy, Ian added some clean detailing. The fork will be an ENVE cross and it’ll be heading out to paint shortly. Part of me really loves seeing a frame in this state but a good coat of paint always brings out the details.
Check out a few more shots below.
Girdy is always weary of the camera.
Why use those stupid plastic cable guides on a custom bike? Also, nice chainstay bridge!
The seat stay bridge has webbing, to mimic the chain stay bridge.
Internal routing, clean cluster.
Simple and elegant BB cluster.
