Wow ... I really wish I hadn't seen that photo! Your work & the design aesthetic / paint on your frames are perfection. Thanks for taking the time to share.

I really like the look of that. Is it customers choice to go with lugs or fillets on the Onesto? I’d like to see the rest of this example.

Thank you.

Yes - it is for the most part the customer choice of lugs or fillets. There are of course a few restrictions or guidelines that may make one more appropriate than the other for a given rider but for many it's an aesthetic choice.

Every time I see something sparklin' shiny and smooth like this, I wonder to myself, "Why bother to paint?? Such a waste!"

Ok boss, we promised to be honest with each other, right?


Er...no...give me titanium, silver, chrome finish over paint....any day!

I don't know why, I have always been attracted to those kind of finish for as long as I can remember. I will accept paint...grudgingly, for the lack of better option.

White is my second favorite color when it comes to bike.

Well, sit tight, I do intend to commission a lugged Onesto JKS in due time.. Like, 2020 at the latest.

I agree, there is something very beautiful about bare metal. I think I'm drawn to the aesthetic of titanium moreso than the ride characteristics. Stainless will get me the ride and the aesthetic..
