My first bike design

This is my wife’s new custom Sweetpea frame, a bike that we can call truly custom because not only did we get the dimensions tailored exactly right but because I designed the paint job.

Abby, my wife, has Scottish ancestry and her own family tartan. The paint scheme I designed is inspired by the colors of that tartan, with varying width bars that represent the frequency of the colors in the tartan.

I’ve designed as number of bike jerseys before but this is my first bike, and I’m damn pleased at how it came out.
