700c Track and City Race Frame
This rider had previously designed their frame and had their tubeset on hand ready to be put together. We helped them make their creation a reality! We also helped make some artistic ideas come to life... follow along in the build pictures below to find out!
Columbus Zona tubeset ready to go!
Track style dropots.
Front triangle tubes mitered and fit into the jig.
Tight miters make strong welds.

The rider had an idea for the seat stay brace...

And back from paint... this here is called Maui Blue!
Handmade in Canada!
Getting in close to that very special and one of a kind seat stay brace!
It's the little details that make a custom frame that much more special. Close in shot to the rear dropouts!
Yes, these water bottle bosses weren't initially installed, we put them on right before paint. The diamond shaped plates you see in the picture below add extra strength to the very thin walled tubes and add some extra flair!
And of course this frame was built using premium Columbus Zona tubes!
