There’s nothing quite like a raw finish on a steel frame to accentuate its craftsmanship and handmade quality. It’s a bit ‘The Bike Stripped Bare’, exposing the colors formed at the point of creation, the minute imperfections that reassure us it was brought to life by a human being. Simultaneously, specks of rust are visible, reminding us that despite its strength, it is still susceptible to the forces of nature.
Jay and Jerome Sycip’s Cross Dresser is a versatile cyclocross frame that can be ordered in as many variations of tubing and geometry as you like. It’s even available in TIG-welded, fillet-brazed or lugged construction. Jeff from Bike Jerks managed to capture one ‘on film’ in its natural environment, at the recent Bottle Cross event held in Minneapolis. This one even has S&S Couplers installed, enabling it to travel by plane without being charged an excess baggage charge.
