    interesting ?!?! raw lacquer Brompton on ebay

    hi all
    this is an interesting ad

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...:X:AAQ:GB:1123

    but the seat post (looks like steel) and the rear frame (with the raw lacquer look) can't be titanium, or am I wrong - I though titanium parts were black ?
    it aint the size of your wheels, its the rhythm of you cadence. And I got powergrips too.

    You are correct, there are no titanium parts on that bike.

    Here is a photo of my Titanium bike. The titanium seat post is a dark blue and the titanium forks and rear triangle are a light grey.

    Also the welds on the rear triangle give it away.

    Your bike is fantastic , I hope you don't think it too cheeky doing a bit of photoshop color correction, it deserves to be shown at it's best.


    I'm impatiently waiting (3 weeks ) for a S6E-X with the same finish (ordered after seeing your post of the bike arriving).

    thx for this photoshop, its helped me. I have to have one, but have been enjoying thinking about the colors. I think if not raw metal with titanium then a blue might work....

    No, not at all. I have never really had the time to explore Photoshop... it certainly looks better than before. Many thanks for altering the original picture.

    Congrats on your new bike, Iím sure it will arrive soon (waiting can be a pain though)
