    More Wily pics if interested

    I have had a bunch of requests from members of this board to see more pics of Wily bikes/paint jobs since my website really hasn't been touched since it's inception. I figured it was easier to post a bunch of pics here than to email them out individually. Sorry if this is a bit self-serving but hopefully you guys/gals will cut me some slack.

    This was one of our more creative bikes and probably one of the coolest (and most expensive!) paint jobs Spectrum has done. In fact this bike is for sale (has been ridden for a year - email me if interested). It is a 29er that was designed for a 5' 7" female (my wife), and has the Retro rear end but a top tube that is a mirror image of the Retro toptube (which was done for standover clearance obviously).

    Self-serving?

    If I built bikes like yours, I'd stick photos of them in the windows of my house plus you're a sponsor here.

    BTW,

    I had an interesting thought concerning sponsorship. All sponsored riders are fit and fast, correct? Why not be known as the builder with a "difference"? I suggest you sponsor an old, slow, fat guy who hasn't raced in 10 years. I can supply you with a name if you're interested

    Seriously, your bikes are beautiful. Now I have to figure out how to convince the "boss" I need another bike.

    This forum is living life good. It's really like having a houte couture fashion designer (sp?) for a personal sponsor. Everyone wants to wear it, and you get factory support!
    Great having you as a sponsor Brad.
    That yellow frame is so hot, I'd almost get it to find a nice riding partner that'll fit on it.
    What will be your wife's next ride to top that?

    Thanks for the compliments, much appreciated. Not sure what my wife's next bike will be. Something creative though, I always like to experiment with our personal bikes to try new concepts and see what works, doesn't work, etc.

    The very top Retro (blue with red lettering) we built for Cameron Chambers about 11 months ago. It was right before Cameron had his breathrough win at 24 hours of Old Pueblo where he ran down and beat Tinker in the middle of the night. Of course now he is a fully sponsored Fisher pro but he tells me he still loves to SS on his Retro.

    Coolest paint job ever!

    This orange/brown sparkle is about the coolest paint job I've ever seen. Any idea how much Spectrum charged for this? It's now near the top of the list (or at the top, depending on cost) of potential colors for the road frame/fork Walt's building me (once his backlog clears!). Thanks for posting it!

    Yeah, I agree. I've seen that bike in person and the photo does not do it justice... It's way cool. Wish I was creative enough to think of it, the green one with the cream panel with silver logo was as far as my artistic talent goes...

    Let me just say it wasn't cheap, even at my cost! There was a lot of masking involved. Depending on the design you could use those 2 colors but do it a bit cheaper.

    What are the specs on your wifes frame? I'd be interested in the EFF TT length, stand over and seat tube c to c. Also, suspension corrected front end?

    How much are you looking to get for it?

    That thing is absolutely stunning by the way!

    Hey, Brad,

    Three of those frames (the black retro, the Yhmer III and the floral) have little, shelf-like things brazed to their right chainstays. What are those? Chainhangers?

    donkey, just drop me an email and I can answer those questions for you

    yes, the first few frames we did had chainhangers on them but i stopped doing that. They could always be put on a customer's frame though if they wanted them.
