Goldmember p0rny project [en]

Fairwheelbikes worked recently on an amazing project called Goldmember. I think you guessed that the bike is exceptionnal and most parts are unique. Not unique for their weight or their mechanical properties but rather for their look and their anodization.
Mostly black, the bike has some gold parts everywhere. We can really stand that it’s a custom bike because of its look.

Notice the work done for the choice of the colours, the handlebar, the stem cap, stem bolts, cable housings, stem spacers, etc…

Brakes parts were gold anodized as well, brake pads are yellow, cable tips too. Bottle cages are of course of the same colour.

Crankset: THM Clavicula

Derailleurs: Shimano Dura-Ace et Tiso

The derailleurs couldn’t be anodized because of some parts made out of steel. Only the aluminium and the titanium can be anodized. So they were painted. Chainrings bolts are gold as the pedals, the chain and the cassette.


ADA wheels:

Quick releases: m²racer

The wheels didn’t have to be modified since they already have gold spokes, however quick releases received a special anodization for titanium.

Complete bike:

Even if the weight wasn’t the main objective, it’s incredibly low:

Final weight: 12.61 pounds
