While we Americans continue to debate the very existence of the penny, few of us can deny the allure of a nice copper finish. Humans first started using copper around 10,000 years ago, and it was the first metal we really got the hang of working with. Too flexy and heavy to make a good bike frame, but as a finish copper sure looks good!
This frame started off life as a Panasonic (good quality Japanese Tange steel) but the paint had seen better days. No dings, dents, or any other damage was detected, however, so the frame got the copper vein powder coat and some very nice components.
The bike features 10-speed Dura-Ace shifters linked up to Ultegra-level drivetrain components. Wheels are Shimano/Mavic, and tires are Panaracer Paselas. In the typical Pedal Revolution fashion we’ve added a comfortable Soma Highway One bar, wrapped in Jaguar Green that’s finished off with some cloth Newbaum’s tape for a smoother feel.
Bike would be a great fit for someone in the 5’4″ to 5’8″ neighborhood. Come check it out today!
