Master frame builder, Tom Donhou, unveils one of his recent creations – a custom Bernard Hinault La Vie Claire inspired frameset.
The frame is built from Columbus XCr tubing, and features the Mondrian-esque livery of the La Vie Claire team, complete with the dates of Hinault’s Tour de France wins. Gorgeous !
March 9.14 – In the booth…
We have had some nice paint jobs go through the booth recently, including Stuart’s XCR road frame. Stuart’s hero is Bernard Hinault and in a tribute to that era he wanted to have the Mondrian pattern featured on his frame and the dates of Hinault’s tour wins.
The Mondrian design is laid over a course white pearl which makes it really pop. A lot of time was spent working up the pattern and getting the proportions right and it shows, this one really came out stunning!
