Bishop Bikes: Stainless Lugs and Gilco Tubing


Bishop Bikes: Stainless Lugs and Gilco Tubing

Photo via Bishop Bikes’ Flickr

We’ve seen in the past that Bishop Bikes has a stockpile of rare Columbus tubesets. I referenced his photos of a complete MAX set in a Merckx Mondays post before and on his Flickr, there are photos of a Columbus Gilco and Krono TT sets. I was wondering what they’d be used for and then this morning, up pops photos of a stainless-lugged Gilco road bike. There are so many details on this frame that are just going to pop clean off the bike when it’s painted. My favorite, as seen here, is the lack of a seatpost clamp since the owner will be using a Puegeot quill-seatpost from the 1980’s.

Keep at it man, these process photos rule. I can’t wait to see the complete project! Check out the full set here.
