Racer XL3

The latest road machine from Big Forest Frameworks

aq_block_3

The beautiful green custom lugged Racer XL3 road bike from Big Forest Frameworks is ready to pound the pavement! This bike was a long time in the making… 7 months ago I posted a Youtube video about how I made the custom lugs for this bike. Check out the video to get an appreciation for the work I put into this machine to make it what it is. Finally it is finished, and it turned out nicer than I could have imagined.

What can I say about it… I love the lugs and the new paint on this frame. I came up with the graphics and painted the bike myself. The graphics on the top and down tube really do a nice job to accentuate the lug detail that make this frame special. I changed the font for Big Forest Frameworks to give this bike the feel of being fast and I think it works really well.

I also wanted to highlight that this bike is made by hand in where I live (Potsdam) so you see this on the seat tube and chain stays. The head badge also got a refreshed look here. I have been cutting them all by hand up until now, which I think is really special. I also felt that a bit cleaner look would look great on road frames, so this one is CNC lasered out of brushed brass sheet. Looks great, I think, and so does the Big Forest Frameworks tree on the tube.

This frame also sports a lugged bottom bracket shell, although you don’t see this lug at first glance it is a really nice touch. The fork is carbon, which I painted to match the frame. I like how the red accents on the fi’zi:k seat tie in with the paint. The high profile carbon rims from Citec (made in Germany) give the Racer XL3 frameset the speedy look it deserves.
