We have posted on Franco Bike from California before, about their direct to consumer model and the beautiful Balcom frame. I just got a heads-up from Julian today about a nice paint option they are doing. From today through 4pm PST on Friday, they are offering a frame or complete build with free a custom paint job at their regular price. A custom painted Balcom frame will go for $1799. They are offering eight different color combinations of pink, yellow, blue and silver on either a black or white base frame color. I would have to go with the white frame and pink accent (above), that could be our team bike. If you are in the market for a new Spring ride, definitely worth a look. Check out the Balcom here.
