Thumbs up Hot tomale bedford

that bike looks fast on the stand, lucky client that gets this first serial number. I understand you have a commitment to build a second one too. I gotta believe once the word gets out that your building mixed material frames the queue will get longer for these. Thanks for sharing

That looks great Kelly! I think you should bring one to the Ramble to show everyone first hand how beautiful that ride is.

just curious, as far as the joining of the seat stays to the chainstays/dropouts, is that sort of an ST Bearing or just a bolt to hold everything together?

also curious, then, if it's just a bolt and conceivably the rear triangle could be split, i'd imagine someone could run a belt drive in this if they wanted to?

and finally, how much would this frame go for, Master Kelly?

$4995.00 plus shipping with Enve 2.0 carbon fork. Finish is solid one color or Ti/Bare carbon. The finish shown probably added $450 extra due to the panels included with striping. Lastly you have a custom painted on logo which also added a few extra FRNS to this finish cost as shown.

Hey not Kelly but I did sleep in a Holiday Inn last night and I should know what this frame costs too

Yes and infact if you really wanted a belt drive Kelly could make a slicker way to remove the belt. NOTHING he does anymore surprises me, but there is a reason we call him Master Bedford.

Are the chainstay/seatstay bolts called Jesus Bolts by chance?



(Gorgeous frame by the way. Seat tube "paneling" detail is spectacular. )
