Harlan's Singlespeed

Another "team Ellis" paint job, this time on Harlan's singlespeed.

The washer on the brake bridge is stainless, I'll sand that off so the paint doesn't get mauled up when Harlan takes the brake on or off. You can also see the hidden internal brake routing at 6:00 on the top tube. That way if he runs it brakeless, the frame doesn't have empty split guides looking useless.

Building up the "Modern Classic"

After much consideration, Steve and I decided to go with a SRAM Red group for his fancy frame. I think it would have looked equally as good with a classic Campy grouppo, but this is the modern in "Modern Classic". I'll have more pics soon, I'm picking up the wheels and rest of the parts tomorrow at Ben's.

The front view.

Stainless seat stays and bridge with the Red caliper.

Last but not least, the Ellis dropouts with Red derailleur. Plus a little detail shot of the lower head lug.
