Beacon of White
Finally! After 2 years of working on bikes, researching components and bike building skills, I finally finished the Beacon frame that was "rescued" from my condo bike room. You can't imagine how difficult it was to find white bicycle parts!!! So I ended up custom painting the pieces myself. Note* never mix enamel and acrylic! She's at the MAX! (at least to my standards) Shimano Ultegra crankset, headset, and front brake. VeloOrange pedals, SRAM aerobrake, carbon fork, Specialized Toupe carbon seat and white elkskin leather handle grips. I strapped a couple of white frog lights on for safety. My back is hating me for this but I love this baby!
